The Theatre program at Manatee School For the Arts is designed to develop students’ talents to their fullest potential and encourage professionalism in all levels and all areas of theatrical work.

The curriculum includes overview theatre classes, acting, musical theatre, stagecraft (technical theatre), and stage makeup classes. Structuring the classes to be hands on starting in 6th grade, our dedicated faculty engage students at their learning level and challenge them to reach for excellence in all they do.

Intertwined in the theatre curriculum is performance. Whether that is in the classroom for peers to being a part of one of our school-wide productions, students are continually challenged to move out of their comfort zone and apply the skills they have learned in class.

Whether engaged in professional preparation or just developing a lifelong  love for the arts, our theatre program has a place for everyone!!
