Plano Senior High School Theatre

The Mission of the Plano Senior High School Performing Arts Department is to provide students with comprehensive instruction in the field of Theatre Arts that will foster an appreciation for the art of theatre and prepare students for study at the university and professional levels. Students will develop a variety of skills and attitudes conducive to a lifetime of independent learning, with an awareness and appreciation for the diverse views and an understanding of the contributions of theatre to society and culture. Plano Senior High School students will obtain a broad, practical, and theoretical knowledge of Theatre as a Fine Art while developing an appreciation of theatre through specialized training in history, dramatic literature, performance, design, and theatre technology. Through work in the classroom, on the stage, and in professional settings, Plano Senior High School theatre students will gain a sophisticated appreciation for the art of theatre, and will be thoroughly prepared to continue their education and pursue productive careers in the Theatre Arts.

Theatre at Plano Senior High School is quintessentially student-centered; every production starts with the recognizing the strengths of the students and then working together to develop their skills. The senior high school directors interact with the theatre programs in the feeder schools so that they can watch the students grow over time. This allows them to choose productions that will highlight and stretch the particular group when they come to the PSHS.

 

 PSHS Theatre has a diverse group of actors and technicians. The productions aim to provide students with a varied experience from Shakespeare to Brecht, from Curtains to Chicago to The Who’s Tommy. The goal is to make sure the students graduate with an impressive portfolio of work that shows their range as actors and technicians.
