The Arts


ImprovClass“Building Character Beyond Ourselves”

At JPII we explore our multifaceted humanity through the theatre arts. Constantly challenging ourselves to push our personal boundaries, while providing a supportive and nurturing environment, we design, build, play, and create our collective artistic vision. Through a variety of dynamic theatre courses students learn the fundamentals of performance and technical theatre with the opportunity to stretch themselves at more advanced levels. Students explore and are challenged to trust their natural instincts while assessing with a realistic and thoughtful approach to theatre. While developing techniques in theatre, lessons become applicable to a successful service-filled life.

Many performance opportunities are produced from our theatre classes. Advance theatre students perform as part of our Christian Service Internship program to outside organizations as well as the JPII community at large.

All students at JPII are encouraged to audition for our fall play and spring musical regardless if they have taken a theatre course.
