The Performance Theatre course is designed so that beginners and experienced young actors alike can flourish and grow. We foster a nurturing and supportive classroom environment where students are asked to take risks and step outside their comfort zones. Improvisation, audition technique, and beginning scene work are used to expand students’ acting and character development skills. Because theatre is a collaborative discipline, students will also build skills in visual art, music, dance, and technical theatre elements. Students actively build an ensemble that values play, trust, expressiveness, curiosity, and generosity of spirit. Students expand on the building blocks of physical acting: posture, poise, movement, and character building. Through rehearsal and performance of plays and musicals, students establish their own work within the larger framework of storytelling and develop skills to tell stories that are meaningful, connected, and worth telling. This experience and exposure to storytelling through theatre is designed to foster a life-long appreciation for the arts, and develop life skills that extend beyond the classroom.

LES MISERABLE

Victor Hugo’s epic tale comes alive on stage, weaving a tapestry of characters who grapple with love, justice, and the pursuit of a better tomorrow. From the fervent revolutionary spirit of Marius and the valiant Jean Valjean’s journey to redemption, to the tragic yet resilient Eponine, each role offers a profound exploration of human emotion and the complexities of the human spirit. With its sweeping score and unforgettable characters, “Les Misérables” invites young actors to dive deep into the heart of storytelling, challenging them to convey the depth of the human experience through the art of performance. This iconic musical promises an unparalleled opportunity for growth and artistic expression, making it a must for any high school theatre student ready to embark on a transformative journey.
