Performing Arts

Ross Sheppard High School has a growing and thriving theatre arts program that is designed for both artists who wish to pursue a career in performing arts and for those who want to gain skills in creativity and collaboration.  Emphasis is placed on professionalism, personal expression, and an awareness of how to use the voice and body as tools to create dynamic and compelling theatrical presentations that inspire growth and change.  Students are exposed to traditional as well as experimental forms of theatre as they explore their responsibility as artists in our communities.  Opportunities beyond the regular Drama 10/20/30 program include Musical Theatre, Advanced Acting, Student Directed One Act Festivals, Improvisation, and much more!
