About the PHS Drama Program
Whether a student dreams of starring in a show, leading the technical team, or helping manage a theatrical production, the PHS Drama department has a long legacy of introducing students to theatre in a way that builds confidence on and off stage. From Drama I classes to the Advanced Acting and Performance Seminar, students explore all aspects of theatre through hands-on experiences.
Drama classes are offered during the day so that students are able to participate in theatre productions while also being a member of an athletic team or other after-school organization. Courses offer students a creative outlet while also introducing them to the principles and techniques of playwriting, including plot structure, dramatic action, point of view, mood, character development, setting, written dialogue, and stage directions. In addition to acting courses, PHS also offers a course on Musical Theatre that explores song and dance and provides students with practical steps to pursuing a career.
Our theatre facilities include the 700+ seat Trego-Biancosino Auditorium and a black box theatre. A full student orchestra accompanies the annual spring musical.
