The theatre arts emphasize the use of the intellect as well as the development of sensitivity, creativity, and the capacity to make reasoned, aesthetic decisions while exploring the range of human experience. As language is a primary component of drama, students develop poise, confidence, ease, and versatility in verbal presentation. There are several ways to enter into theatre arts, but always these courses result in successful interactions, performances, and products.


HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION:
Theatre and Performing Arts is an elective under Fine Arts. A student must earn 10 credits in two out of three selective elective areas (Fine Arts, World Languages and Applied Academics). For example, if a student earns 10 credits in a theatre course (Fine Arts) he/she would still need 10 credits from either World Languages or Applied Academics to satisfy the graduation requirement.


UC ELIGIBILITY:
f. Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) – 1 year required.
A student must earn 10 credits and a grade of "C" or higher in a single, yearlong approved VPA course.
