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. 

    Public performances, reader's theater, costume design, stage make-up, sound, stage lighting, stage combat, and script writing and directing are all opportunities offered through:

    Theatre Arts class (Grade 9 elective)

    Performing Arts I (Grade 10-11 elective)

    Performing Arts II (Grades 11-12 elective)

    Productions:

    • Cabaret Night
    • Musical
    • One-Act Play
    • Play
    • Dinner Theater
    • SOAP: Student written and directed One-Act Plays
    • Improvable Force Improv Troop
