4 Year Plan

Incoming Freshmen 4 Year Plan for Theatre Students

Wondering how to fit Theatre into your class schedule?  Check out this info, then email Mrs. Tucker with any further questions.  Update:  CCP is no longer a required class for graduation, so Freshmen now have more room in their schedule to take a Theatre class!


Actors' Repertory Class:  May 2019.  Auditions for current Drama students who want to reach the top level acting class at Capo.  Pre-requisite is Drama 1, Advanced Drama, or a combination of the two, or extensive theatrical training at a different high school or theatre.  More information on what to prepare for the Actors' Repertory Class audition.


Advanced Drama Class:  May 2019.  Auditions are only for students who feel that they are ready to skip a year of Drama 1.  This should only be considered for students who have experience in plays (at Capo or community theatre) and have a love of theatre.  Students will be skipping a year of lessons, so they should be fast learners who can catch up with the terminology, theatre history, and analysis techniques taught in Drama 1.  More information on what to prepare for the Advanced Drama Class audition.


There are no auditions necessary if you want to add Drama 1 to your schedule, or if you are a continuing Drama 1 student who wants to take Advanced Drama.
