24-Hour Theatre Project

September 27

7:00 p.m.

Our students create.

We provide students opportunities to appear on stage and contribute to the creative process via a backstage or technical role. Our students are not just actors but also designers and technicians; our students learn with their hands as well as their brain as they design sound, lights, scenery, props, and many other aspects of production.

Our theatre season

We present a full season of fun and challenging plays and musicals. Each season is thoughtfully selected based on its entertainment value and educational potential. An easily affordable subscription is available for purchase by students and members of the community.

Our stage parents

Parents assist via activities such as ticket sales, concessions, boutique, VIP room hosting, star grams, gift basket auctions, program ad sales, hosting cast\crew parties, and chaperoning for various trips and conferences, among other activities

Thespian Troupe 5570

Our Thespian Troupe is a student-led honorary organization in which our students undertake leadership opportunities and other activities.
