Theatre has the capacity to be the greatest of all art forms because it is all art forms. Each student is guided towards becoming their own type of process driven, collaborative artist. An artist built upon the foundations of compassion, hard work, and the importance of community. True success in theatre is not found in the credit or the recognition, it’s found in the joy of a group of people coming together, learning from one another, solving a problem, and showing the audience who they are.
