THEATRE

The goal of the Theatre Arts program at MAS is to develop a quality product through an emphasis on the artistic process. Students will learn through a course of study that furthers the disciplines of the theatre arts, including movement, voice, and the structural elements of theatre. The process includes developing skills in self-awareness, concentration, listening, observation, problem solving, critical thinking, and performance. The curriculum, also, provides students with the techniques they need to freely express their creativity. The study of theatre history, literature, and the production of theatre create a well-rounded and prepared theatre arts student. Students are expected to be involved in extra-curricular theatre activities, including district and state theatre education organizations. These opportunities give students the ability to perform, participate in productions and share their talent with other students and the community.
