The Performing Arts Department is dedicated to creating professional quality performance that ranges in style from self-created pieces to classical works to contemporary performance. Students are taught to respect the creative environment and all the elements that go into the realization of a production, both on and off-stage. Two fully-equipped performance spaces and a large scene shop provide the ground for skilled tech training and ambitious scenic, sound and lighting design elements.

All-School Play - Peter and the Starcatcher


Who was the wild child Peter Pan before he got his name? And what is a girl doing standing up against the most-feared pirate on the seven seas? Join us for a pirate-packed, starstuff-studded wickedly fantastic romp with Molly the Starcatcher, Boy the orphan, and a bounty of outrageous characters jammed full of vim, vigor and attitude.

There may be magic.
There could be mermaids.
There will be fisticuffs with the evil captain, Black Stache!
