Welcome to Davies High 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)
- Cabaret Night
- One-Act Play
- Dinner Theater
- SOAP: Student written and directed One-Act Plays
- Improvable Force Improv Troop

Rehearsal Schedules will be available on Sept 9th. Most rehearsals will be afterschool from 4-6, however there will be some Saturdays, because I plan to allow all non school weekdays and holidays to be free from rehearsals. I hope you can enjoy some family time during those days. The last 3 weeks will involve a little more time so please do not schedule appointments and such during that time.
There will be a parent informational meeting for Cast, Crew, and Pit members of Draculawithin the first month. Our lead parent, Jody Jahner will be contacting via email once we have a complete cast and tech list.
