• Theatre Arts Performance & Auditions

  • The theatre arts season includes a children’s show and ensemble production in fall, a main stage musical in the winter term and a studio theatre production of a classic or contemporary work in the spring. Throughout the year students also participate in a variety of performances including original works, one-act plays and readings, comedy-improv shows and showcases.

    Auditions are open to all students.
