Theater Courses


    The purpose of the Theatre Arts Program is to build a broad base of theatre content knowledge and skills. On the basic level, students develop and refine communication skills and gain a deeper understanding of history and the practice of Theatre.

These abilities are in the following areas:

    • Problem solving

    • Critical and creative thinking

    • Communication

    • Individual and collaborative planning and implementation

    • Historical and cultural understanding

    • Self- and social-awareness
