Theatre Arts Education
Theatre is a form of expression and communication that is basic to human life. Theatre involves response and expression through senses, imagination, and the emotional and cognitive dimensions of our being. Theatre is often called the "coming together" and "synthesis" of all the arts. Students enrolled in Theatre Arts courses explore this collaborative art form. Upper level courses are performance-based and employ acting and directing skills for school and community audiences. Students assist with set and prop work and help make lighting and costume decisions.
