The Importance of Theatre in High School

This February ULS students will bring Disney's High School Musical to the stage.  60 of our 148 students in grades 7-12 will be participating in the cast and crew of this new "American Classic."   Forty percent participation in a school activity that requires countless hours of practice and commitment speaks volumes about the strength of the ULS theatre program.  So, why is it important for students to participate in theatre?  What do the students gleam from the inordinate hours of rehearsal and performance?  Is it worth the disruption of your family's schedule so your child can participate in these dramatic productions?  The answer of course is Yes, Yes, Yes...  Check out the attached article that outlines some obvious and some not so obvious benefits your child receives when they participate in theatre.  See you at the show!
