Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade all have the opportunity to participate in Theatre in multiple ways. 6th grade students will participate in theater for 12 weeks as part of their Arts wheel rotation. 7th and 8th grade students are able to choose from Visual Art, Music, Digital Photography, or Theater as their Art for the year.
All Middle School students may also take part in our Junior Thespian troupe, which allows students to showcase themselves in performance events like monologue, acting scenes, musicals, pantomime, and improvisation. They can also participate in technical design categories for costume, makeup, publicity, and scenic design, as well as scene writing. Junior Thespians compete both locally in our District and at the State level.
In addition to classes and Junior Thespian events, all Middle School students have opportunities to audition and rehearse after school with our One Act play in the fall and our full length Spring production. Both of these productions give students the opportunity to showcase their skills on stage in front of a live audience.
