WHY Theater??? Higher Test scores! Theater teaches students to combine all subjects through an inquiry based curriculum, and create new “wholes” based on this information. No other subject does this to the degree that the Theater classroom does.
Did you know Theater students almost daily study… Applied Psychology History Algebra Geometry Biology Chemistry Physiology Literature Foreign Languages Music Visual Arts Computer Science Analysis And about 1,000 other subjects, in order to create what should be an entity for social change.
Fundraising While a fee is charged for this class, it may become necessary to do a bit of fundraising. Theater is very expensive! So, we hope that parents and students won’t mind helping with out efforts.
Please plan to get involved! We will be doing daytime and some evening performances. Please check your email, or my website for details of shows.
