  • Interested in trying theatre out? Take Improv class where you learn and practice the skills of Improvisational Theatre. We perform an Improv Festival at the end of the semester for our friends and families.
  • Do you like theatre but you don’t want to be on stage? Join our Theatre Technologies class! This is a CTE course and you can earn College Credit if you take all 3 Theatre Technologies courses and pass the exam.
  • Do you like to watch movies and learn trivia and analyze the acting and how the film was produced? Take Film Studies! We watch several films throughout the semester and learn how it was made, discuss the acting, and how it was adapted from the source material. You do a bit of writing in this class too!

All of these courses will run based on student numbers. We offer them when there are more than 15 students signed up.
