Theatre

"We know from the Word of God that He is creative and that He has bestowed gifts and talents to point our world back to Him. It can be easy to glorify the created things, but we must know that the Creator alone is worthy of all our praise."

- Domenic Andolina, Theatre Director

PRODUCTIONS

The FACS Theatre production season includes a fall stage play and spring musical. Students in grades 7-12 may audition for our Winter play or Spring musical production.  Elementary-aged students, grades 4-6, are included in productions as deemed necessary and fitting by the director and script.  Auditions are announced on FACS Connect. 

CURRICULUM

Theatrical arts courses are offered as electives for students in grades 7-12.

 

Introduction to Theatre provides an overview of the history of theatre, set design, storytelling, improvisation and scriptwriting. 

Theatre I explores the connections between theatre and society, engages students in script analysis and develops their acting skills through improvisation and scene study. 

 

Theatre II allows students to explore specific areas of the theatrical arts. Students will analyze four plays and have an opportunity to serve in a position of leadership during FACS productions.

Theatre III is catered to the individual student's interest in theatre. Each student will choose 4 areas of specific study (lighting, acting, costume design, and set design, for example) and will end each quarter with a culminating project evaluating their knowledge and mastery of each of the 4 chosen areas.
