Welcome to Davies High Theatre!

  • Theatre

    The Theatre is an excellent way to develop self-confidence, both on and off the stage. Theatre students develop life skills, such as collaboration, concentration and communication. Imaginations are invigorated by creating improvisations, short scenes, and video movies.

    Theatre Arts class (Grade 9 elective)

    Performing Arts I (Grade 10-11 elective)

    Performing Arts II (Grades 11-12 elective)

    Productions:

    • Cabaret Night
    • Musical

ANNOUNCEMENTS!

  • Hello, Theatre Parents.

                I hope you are all beginning to recover from DRACULA. It was very well received, and I was so proud of all the students. There was so much talent displayed in our production.  I like to send out updates throughout the year to keep everyone informed. In this message I have provided some useful information for all parents and students involved in Davies Theatre.  

    Due to some changes within the district we have had some minor date adjustments. We have also finalized dates for some of our extra events throughout the year. Additions and changes have been notated in red.
