THEATER

 The CES theater program seeks to lay a foundation for multidisciplinary practice in theater and performing arts, and encourages and challenges our students through training and performance.  We offer multiple opportunities to participate as performers or as crew for our two major annual productions; the CES Playback Improvisational ensemble; the theater and performance class production; and our speech team.

Heaven on Earth

Performance Dates: Friday, Nov. 5, through Sunday, Nov. 7

“Heaven on Earth” is a theater poem musing about new life springing from past cultures. Featuring songs from James Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Leonard Cohen, and REM, a talented cast asks “Is heaven a place on earth?”

Regardless of whether students wish to pursue studies in theater arts after high school, the skills students develop in problem-solving, leadership, expressiveness, and teamwork are invaluable.

The theater and performance classes develop vocal and physical expressiveness, action-oriented acting technique, improvisation, mask character improvisation, acting classical text, musical theater, monologue, scene study, playwriting, and theater composition. The Theater Tech and Costuming courses complete the program.

Our students are the designers who build the sets, make the costumes, light the stage, and check the sound. Under the supervision of directors and faculty, the students are the leads in every aspect of our productions.

We are a charter member of the International Thespian Society Troupe 8387 and attend both state and national conferences, where students participate in workshops, present monologues, and meet with other theater enthusiasts from all over the country.
