BREADCRUMB

Theatre

Theatre has been a large part of our school for more than 50 years. Whether our students are new to the performing arts or veteran performers, our extensive curricular and extracurricular offerings provide a home for students to develop techniques, discover new talents, hone their craft, and grow as an artist. Moreover, our theatre classes provide a structure for students to develop interdisciplinary skills while engaging in the arts. 

Our Theatre I class specifically focuses on the vocal and physical techniques used to tell a story through improvisation, monologues, scene study, and workshops. Theatre II then takes this foundation and builds upon it by introducing students to complex acting techniques, character development, script analysis, and stage direction. The Theatre II class culminates in a full-length, student-directed production. 

At the same time, we also offer a Technical Theatre Design and Building course that provides students the opportunity to explore the world of theatre through the design and production of sets, props, lighting, and sound. During the second semester, students act as the designers and technical crew for the Theatres II production.

We even have a scriptwriting class for students who are more interested in learning about narrative structures and how to craft a properly formatted script that takes into account themes, sets, characters, dialogue, conflict, and subtext. 

After school, interested students can audition for one of our Theatre Company productions, including black box performances and 24-hour plays. In addition, eligible Company members can compete against other schools through International Thespian Society Troupe 445. We also encourage our students to participate in the annual Winton Arts Film Festival.

Facilities

All of our theatre productions take place in our 400-seat Brother Celestine Cormier, FSC Theatre.  

Coming in April

Join us in mid-April for Company’s spring musical production of Anything Goes. This musical farce is a hilarious shipboard romp wrapped in one of Cole Porter's most magical scores, and it is sure to delight audiences.
