Theatre / Productions

High school is full of drama...just ask the St. Teresa's Academy Theatre Department! Here, students interested in drama and theatrical design/production flourish. STA students have ample opportunities to get involved within the theatre program. Three shows are presented each year; a musical and a play both directed by theatre teacher Shana Prentiss, and student productions written and directed by seniors of St. Teresa's Academy.

All aspects of our productions, from stage management to lighting design, from costume to the makeup crew, are student-lead and student-organized. Students of STA's theatre program have a greater sense of ownership over their productions. Girls choosing to participate in productions not only have fun, they learn valuable leadership skills that last a lifetime.
