Theater Classes teach student a variety of techniques that enable them to interpret a role and perform onstage. All stage productions are an outgrowth of Theater Department classes. Students in the program have the opportunity to participate in major productions, as well as Studio Theater Productions and the One Act Play Festival. Students not enrolled in theatre classes are not as well prepared to participate in such production; however they are invited to participate.
