Gibbons Drama provides students the opportunity to explore and experience all areas of the theatrical arts, including both performance-based and technical theater classes.
Drama students engage the imagination, the voice, and the body in immersive project-based learning in a classroom environment that is supportive and challenging. In the process, drama students gain valuable skills in the areas of critical thinking, creative problem-solving, collaboration, self-discipline, self-confidence, leadership, and perseverance.
- Drama I (freshmen-by audition)
- Drama II (sophomores)
- Drama III (juniors, seniors)
- Drama IV Honors (seniors)
- Musical Theater Workshop Honors (juniors, seniors-by audition)
- Four levels of technical theater classes
