North East ISD is proud of its talented and strong theatre programs. The award-winning Theatre Arts program of North East ISD provides opportunities for students to develop their creative talents.
Classroom training and campus theatrical productions allow students to explore and create through the development of acting skills, physical movement, use of make-up, costuming, lighting, sound, set design and construction.
We welcome all students to join theatre any time during their secondary school career, we encourage students to start their theatre journey in sixth grade and enjoy the sequential curriculum through high school and beyond.
High School theatre students are highly involved in many productions throughout the year to include a school-wide musical, a full season of shows as well as University Interscholastic League (UIL) contests and other competitive festivals.
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.
