Drama

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.
