Performances

The Performances program is primarily run after school with rehearsals twice a week and performances on weeknights and weekends. In this program students have the opportunity to perform in a play in the Fall and a musical production in the Spring semester. Students who prefer a role off of the stage also have the chance to participate in the productions through backstage crew work such as sets, props, costumes, hair, makeup and other technical theater roles. There are also leadership opportunities for student director roles in music, acting, and dance.
 
Rehearsals in the Fall will be Mondays and Thursdays from 2:00-3/4 depending on the rehearsal.
