Welcome to Theatre Arts! 


I am so excited to get to know all of you and start on this adventure together! I am so pumped to get meet and see everyone whether you are a new student to theatre or returning for more. Happy to have you all! Theatre at Central Magnet ranges from middle school theatre classes (beginners level and no prerequisites) all the way to Theatre 4 in high school. We will cover and discuss a range of theatre topics from improvisation, acting methods, scene work, theatre history, playwriting, and more. I have some BIG PLANS for our department this year and I can't wait for you all to join me. We are going to have a GRRRREAT year! (get it? Because we are the Tigers...too much? Okay, okay, you understand. I'M EXCITED!!)
