Theatre Arts

The Theatre program at NEISD is designed to provide a venue for creative expression and performance. The student is taught to analyze and evaluate dramatic texts as a basis for considering themes, time periods, settings, literary styles and characters. The student develops concepts, using elements of drama and conventions of theatre, and applies design, directing, and theatre production concepts and skills. In the advanced theatre classes, the student casts and directs duet scenes, analyzes the role of actor, ensemble, and director in production decision making, and produces a unified theatrical production.
