Theatre at The Founders Academy

The Theatre program aims to create leaders in the arts, not only through performance, but also through design and technical work. Through Theater I: Introduction to Theatre, and additional theatre classes, students will have the opportunity to grow in their knowledge and practice of theatre.

The curriculum focuses on the concepts of theatre: acting, lighting, sets, and costumes, as well as the practical application of design. Our students work collaboratively to create their own interpretations of theatrical works. They are given leadership roles which ask them to bring their imaginations to life through their work.

Students will learn through a variety of methods. They will study the history of the theatre, engage in hands-on practical applications, and participate in several workshops throughout the year, the most significant of which is the New Hampshire Educational Theatre Guild student workshops in the fall.

In addition to learning and practicing elements of design, students will also develop a critical perspective of theatre as they research and write performance reviews throughout the year.

Drama Club
Both the Middle School and High School Drama Club productions at Founders employ student leaders who take on important roles within the production. From stage managing to lighting, costume, and make-up design, students are given the opportunity to practice their skills and bring their visions to life through work with the Drama Club.
