Comprehensive Theatre is a course that is offered at the end of the day for all the Musical Theatre students who choose to take a second period of drama.  You may choose to take Musical Theatre alone, but if you choose to enroll in two periods of drama, sign up for Musical Theatre and Comprehensive Theatre. Students who take both courses must commit to being involved in productions and after school activities. Intro to Drama is for students interested in taking an overview course of theatre. This course explores all areas of theatre, including beginning stage craft, acting, and improvisation.
