Theatre

Lights up!  Whether you are a thespian who loves the limelight or someone who prefers to exercise your creativity backstage through design and execution, Regents theatre has a place for you!  In the classroom, students can participate in studio acting classes (scenes and monologues class), backstage work including set building, costuming, lighting, sound design (theater production and design class), production performance work (honors theatre class).  Students who are more interested in film that the stage have the option of studying study film, script writing, and film acting (film and performance class).  After school, students can participate in either of our two theatre productions each year.   In the Regents theatre department we seek to build wonderful relationships with each other while seeking to bring God glory through our work.  Come join us!
