At Catholic High School, the Theatre Company is our after-school theater program for CHS students. The Company is separate from drama class; however, the philosophy is much the same. It is based on discipline and teaches the skills necessary to produce serious performance art and is open to any CHS student that auditions for a show and is offered a role.
Usually, the Company produces two shows a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Students, if offered roles in both shows, will find themselves acting in one classical piece and one modern piece of theater each year.
The purpose of the Company is not only to teach students the basics of theatrical productions but also to take them on a journey of self-discovery. To be accepted into the Company takes commitment, vision, creativity, respect, positive attitude, focus, and talent.
All aspects of the producing a show are hands-on and actors will be expected to help in all aspects of production from acting to set construction and from lighting and sound to publicity. Being a part of CHS Theatre Company is being part of a dramatic troupe that is dedicated to the creation of theatre as an art form.
If this sounds interesting to you, pick up some audition material and lend us your voice. The opportunities are endless.
