Theatre Arts

Welcome to Capo Theatre Arts!

The Theater Arts program at Capistrano Valley High School includes a comprehensive performing arts training.  We offer training in Acting, Stagecraft, IB Theatre, Musical Production, Choir, and Pit Orchestra.  Three levels of Drama are offered including: Drama 1, Advanced Drama, and Actors' Repertory.  The after school productions are audition-only but are open to all.  Auditions are held during the first week of fall semester for the fall play, and the week before the spring semester for the musical.  Please visit the tabs to the left to navigate through the Drama and Stagecraft pages for more information.

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.  Please click here for more information on what to prepare for the 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.  Click here for more information on what to prepare for the 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.
