Students in grades 9 – 12 may enroll in Musical Theatre Class with the permission of the instructor. This class is designed to provide students with experience in the artistic/creative process through participation in all aspects of play production. Students design their own individual education plan which determines what aspect(s) of theatre will be their primary focus. Options include acting, singing, designing and building the set, sound engineering, and graphic design, which involves all aspects of promoting a show. The class assists in the production of two plays each year, so some after-school responsibilities are required. The course meets the Michigan Merit Curriculum criteria for the high school Fine Arts requirement.
