Theater Arts
The courses and performance opportunities offered by the Theater Arts program are designed to meet the needs, interests, and talents of senior high school students. They present opportunities to study Theater Arts from a technical aspect, and to develop self-expression and appreciation through participation in the various theatrical productions.

To earn a Regents or local diploma sequence in Theater Arts, the students must complete three units of Theater Arts, including at least one credit in a performance based class such as Acting, Musical Theater, or Theater Dance. The remaining units may be earned in any course in the Theater Arts Program. Graduation honors must include Theater Dance 3 and 4 or Production Practicum as well as fulfillment of normal honors criteria.

A significant requirement of the various performance-based classes is that students participate in some capacity with the theatrical production offered by the program each semester.

Students who plan to specialize in Theater Arts or Theater Arts education as a career are urged to elect not only the five-unit sequence, but also to participate extensively in the theatrical productions.

* ALL PERFORMANCE-BASED COURSES ARE ACCEPTABLE TO FULFILL THE ONE UNIT REQUIREMENT IN THE ARTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION.
