Our Theatre Arts program is part of the Ribét Curriculum starting with First Grade and is available as an elective option for Middle and High School students. Theatre has been proven many times over that it is amazing for children's development. Ribet's Theatre Department has been around for many years and will continue to be funded for years to come.
Through the Theatre Department, Middle and High School students go through lessons about monologues, drills, partner work, scenes, writings, and many more. Students are able to learn skills for reading comprehension, communication skills, and public speaking. All characteristics that make students well-rounded and more competitive in the long term.
With interest, there are additional plays where rehearsals are after school with students who are dedicated to the craft in a more serious manner. We are taken groups of students to compete in Theatre Festivals with Monologues, Partner Scenes and Music Mash-Ups.
Each year, the Theatre Arts Department produces two Mainstage shows; a drama or non-musical in the Fall and a musical in the Spring.
