Our performing arts department produces three major stage productions and multiple band and choir events yearly.
The Rising Stars Talent Show is produced by the high school choir department and is a great opportunity for students to show off their various talents. Vocal performance, dance, skits these are just a few examples of the what our students bring to the stage. The Rising Stars Talent Show is annually held the Saturday of Homecoming week.In the fall we produce a play each year. Past productions include: A Midsummer Nights Dream, Dracula, and Alice in Wonderland. Auditions are held very early on in the school year and are open to all high school students. Never performed on stage before? That doesn’t mean that you are not qualified. We can provide the basic training necessary for students to be on stage.
In March we bring our annual musical to the stage. Past productions include: Oliver, Footloose, Once Upon A Mattress, and Fiddler on the Roof. The musical presents a great opportunity for students to learn the “triple threat” of singing, dancing, and acting all at once. In addition to the on stage talent, our musicals also require a student orchestra. Auditions are usually held in mid December so be sure to look for information in the fall.
