Drama Programs at Centennial School Middle School and Centennial High School

Theater is proven to improve focus, teach problem-solving skills, teamwork, confidence, and important life skills.

The Centennial Theatre program is one of the foremost heralded programs in the state. Our district theatre programs are all under one roof meaning:

Our theater programs feed from the middle school into the high school club so we have combined both programs with the same staff and Directors from Middle School through High School.

We encourage each school to support the other in their productions. High school students are connected to the Middle School programs. We have student directors from the high school work with the students at the Middle School programs. Students connect to the program, creating a cohesive and strongly bonded community.

All schedules for each program are published for the year in the summer before the school year starts, including mandatory meeting and audition schedules.

The Centennial Middle School Theatre programs are for students at all levels of acting, from beginning to more experienced. Our schedules for all theatre programming at the Middle School allow for students to participate in all theatre programs without conflict.

I love how theater can transform students and change lives. Theater transports us to other cultures and new ideas and even worlds--from the deeply philosophical to the utterly absurd. Most importantly, theater teaches all of us empathy, which is the beginning of creating a better, safer world for everyone.

Teaching theater, therefore, is what I believe allows students to be free to express thoughts and fears, but it’s also what fuels me as a professional. Theater provides a safe place for students to think out loud and “try on” ideas and, because they are allowed to fly around with safety nets, they unwittingly and unknowingly teach the teacher.
