Speech and Theatre Education Concentration in Theatre

Nurture a love for the theatre — from the green room to center stage

There is something very special about the high school theatre — it’s where students are given opportunities to foster their creativity and discover who they are — as actors, musicians, directors, technicians, managers, and simply as friends and people. To be a theatre teacher or program director is to foster hands-on learning and creativity in young people in a field that you’re passionate about.
