 Theatre Performing Arts

​​​​​​​​​As students develop and progress through the rigor of the technical, emotional and social elements of theatre, CAPA Theatre Performing Arts Pathway aims to provide students with an opportunity to participate in multiple components of a theatrical production in order to create a comprehensive understanding of the essential elements each component provides. Students will develop world views by exploring dramatic literature that is representative of various cultural perspectives. Their training will lay the pre-professional groundwork that will provide them with the skills necessary to continue their artistic pursuits at prestigious universities and conservatories.
