Performing Arts

Our Foundation Arts Theater courses allow students to explore life on and behind the stage. With an emphasis on basic acting techniques, history of theater, text analysis, movement, theater production, it is a great introduction to the performing arts.

There are a number of performing arts electives, exploratories, and intersession opportunities, as well as annual fall and spring productions. All our productions are performed in front of a live audience and performers are selected based on an audition.

Some recent past productions have included:
  • American Idiot by Billie Joe Armstrong
  • The Ballad of Barbara Allen by Howard Richardson and William Berney
