My Students

The theatre department is home to some of the most driven, compassionate, and creative 9th-12th grade students that you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. My students are passionate about the purpose of theatre, which is to tell the audience a story.

Whether it's my student actors conveying emotions through their voices and movements or my theatre technicians utilizing lighting and scenic design, they're all equally passionate about their love for theatre and the community that we have built.

Space is limited, and my largest class has 28 students, so I have utilized furniture from our previous productions for classroom seating. Our space is unique, just like our program! The theatre is the only place where actors, singers, dancers, designers, and builders can come together to create one project. I firmly believe that there is a place in the theatre for everyone, whether or not you want to be on the stage.

My Project

My technical theatre class is comprised of 17 talented high-school students who build the sets for our two theatrical productions each year. We're getting ready to start building for our spring play, Tuck Everlasting, and this table would really help us out! Currently, we put desks together to create a surface to work on. This has resulted in damage to the classroom desks/tables and it takes time away from our projects because we have to move the tables in and our of our work area. This new table is on wheels, which allows us to quickly and efficiently move it anywhere. It also has adjustable legs, which means we can change the height to fit the needs of our project. This table will change the way we build scenery in our school!
