Theatre & Media Arts


At TCIS, students are introduced to the expressive, meaningful and dynamic world of Theatre Arts. The courses offered introduce students to leading theater theorists and their acting techniques that have shaped the world of theatre. Students learn the many diverse aspects of staging a theatre production, from acting to theatre technician, with the experience of creating real mockups that give them a real and informed voice in the devising process:

  • Students are taken through theory and practice of dramatic technique within the classroom.
  • Students can participate in any one of the major fall and spring productions at TCIS, as cast or various crew roles.
  • There are multiple opportunities throughout the school year to be involved in smaller performances connected to a variety of other TCIS programs and events.

The Benefits of Theatre

We often see theatre as one of the more under-appreciated activities among parents for developing student character. There is a lot of language and social learning that happens in the practice and performance of theatre production. Beyond the most obvious benefit of collaboration within a production team, students gain confidence in speaking, non-verbal communication, and confident stage presence.

The ability to study oratory and practice speaking, combined with the self-reflection and mental control learned in playing a character, creates a formidable set of skills that serve children well in life. We see this evident in their school work at TCIS and also in our theatre alumni. They often cite their "fun times" in drama as being the producer of many of the most valuable skills in their career.

Drama and media classes engage in studies, exercises, and projects designed to teach communication and presentation – in both verbal and non-verbal formats.
