Our Theater program celebrates life.
Theater is an art that combines literature, movement, visual art, and sound to better understand humanity. We do this through compassion and commitment. Through all aspects of theater, we create moments on the stage that we hope will transform our audiences and ourselves. We welcome students with various backgrounds and experience to contribute as actors, directors, stage managers, technicians, and writers.
There are two levels of theater classes. The first class studies and practices the history of theatrical styles and forms through scenes study, exercises, and text analysis. The Theater Intensive class gives the advanced theater student an opportunity to work deeply on any given aspect of theater, culminating in student generated productions.
During the Evening Arts program, the Theater program presents two full-length plays and one musical to be performed during the Project Weeks. These plays are open to all members of the community who come to the auditions.
During the Afternoon program, there are design classes that provide students with the skills to design and build sets and lights for The Jeffrey Campbell Theater productions and the Theater Intensive plays.
