Together, We Are Rockbridge!
Theater is a class that happens during the school day. Register for "Survey of Theater and Dance" to get involved!
Everyone in Theater class needs to be comfortable being visible on stage, but not everyone must be an actor.
We will do at least one large-scale production each year.
We will have extended practices that go beyond the regular school day as we approach our production performance (usually the last two months prior to a performance). Students' extra-curricular schedules are considered when planning practices.
