MHS Community Theater Program
- Stage Acting: 6 years and older
- Set Building & Costuming: 4th - 12th Grade
We have a fantastic year planned for students who wish to be involved in the performing art of theater. We will have opportunities for students to participate in all aspects of theater from stage performance to set design, costuming, props and production.
The class will begin as a basic intro to theater where students will learn the basics of putting on a theater production. From there, students will divide into their areas of skill and interest - set design, performance, staging (costuming, props and makeup) or production (sound, lighting, and special effects).
Note: We are looking for parent volunteers who are skilled in these areas to enhance our program.
Those remaining in the performance segment of the program will continue to learn the basics of theater performance until the time of auditions which will be September 11, 2020. During auditions, some students will be selected as performers in the spring production and others will either continue in the Theater Skills segment where they can grow their potential for upcoming theater productions in our community or be asked to join one of the theater production teams. Performing students will be responsible for providing their under garments and costume accessories (shoes, tights, hair bows, socks, gloves, hats).
Note: We are looking for parent volunteers who can help facilitate the theater skills portion of the program from September 25th through the end of April.
The spring production will be a non-musical production chosen from the following; Jungle Book, Treasure Island, Puss in Boots and Charlotte’s Web. The production will be selected after enrollment has closed and we know who our participants will be. The date and location of the performance is currently TBD but will be known by the first date of class. It will be held in the community in April 2021 with the possibility of multiple performances. Tickets will be sold for $5 each as a fundraiser for next year’s theater program.
