Classroom Experience

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.

Gibbons Drama Class Offerings:

  • 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

Detailed information about all Drama Program academic course offerings can be found via the Fine Arts Course Descriptions.

We are an ensemble-driven community of creative leaders
who embrace and share our gifts to glorify God through the art of theater.
