    PERKINS THEATRE DEPARTMENT

     The Theatre goal at Perkins is not only to build the confidence level of each student, but also to instill in them the art and appreciation of the theatre. The words we build our drama program on are IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY. Through the students' discipline, focus, and theatre technique, we explore all the possibilities of our creative minds.
