Expectations

 Middle School performances may include fall and spring productions, campus-wide musicals, district wide contests, festivals and occasional performances around the community. 

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.
