The theater Department currently has a diverse population of over 130 students enrolled in classes ranging from intro to drama, musical theater, advanced acting for camera, and an award winning technical theatre program. Every quarter, CHS Theatre presents at least one major theater performance.
TheatreCHS has consistently remained an important and vital fine arts force at Charlottesville High School. The Program invites students to work collaboratively, develop critical thinking and public speaking skills, and engage in creative dialogues. An array of courses are taught with the intention of providing enrichment for students interested in these skills all of which encompass dramatic arts. Numerous students have gone on to pursue advanced studies in theater/cinema, technical theater, stage management, and lighting design.
The Department is a student-centered community that emphasizes the process of artistic collaboration and instills a disciplined work ethic. By practicing professionalism, collaboration and emphasizing individual development, we will continue to bring to the stage high quality theater productions.
