We strive to serve the Rye Neck High School community by expanding students’ interests and exploring cultures and voices from all over the world as we create curricula and productions that expose students to the art and craft of theatre. Through an exploration of performance, design, research, and technical opportunities we aim to create lifelong theatergoers and participants, empathetic and responsible ensemble members, and confident individuals able to express themselves in meaningful ways.
THEATRE CORE VALUES
All members of Rye Neck Theatre are expected to embrace and exhibit the Theatre Core Values. Everything you need to know about how to behave and what is expected of you in classes and rehearsals can be summed up within these seven Core Values:
Trust: We recognize that genuine trust is a necessary component of artistic expression and collaboration within an ensemble.
Honesty: We intend to be honest, authentic, and sincere in all interactions to build a stronger ensemble.
Ensemble: We endeavor to be a strong and supportive ensemble to create meaningful experiences in rehearsals and performances.
Attitude: We pledge to bring a positive attitude each day, understanding a positive attitude is necessary to maintain a productive learning environment.
Talent: We commit to bringing the best of our individual talents to each project, knowing that each of us has something important to contribute to this unique ensemble.
Respect: We will demonstrate respect for each other, our spaces, and the artistic process. We understand that it is only through respect that we strengthen our ensemble and create a positive experience for all.
Excellence: We strive for excellence in everything we do. We recognize that it is the repetition of excellence that makes an artist.
