We encourage our students to develop and refine their talents outside of the school day, by mounting five full theatrical productions, various smaller productions and by sponsoring Thespian and Cappies troupes.

The Junior Thespian Society is a place for thespians to share and develop their zeal for theatre with other middle school students. Junior Thespians compete against other thespians in a variety of solo and ensemble categories including ensemble acting, solo music, monologue, pantomime, play writing, costume design, set design, and one-act plays. Participation in competitions starts at the district level, and qualifying students move forward to compete at the state level. There are also social activities and fundraising activities for thespians, such as the annual mystery bus ride and picnic.
Through our Senior Thespian Troupe, high school theatre enthusiasts share their passion for theatre with their peers. Senior Thespians also compete against other theatre students from area high schools in categories such as monologue, duet acting, ensemble acting, solo music, duet music, ensemble music, pantomime, set design, costume design, publicity, student-directed scenes, play writing, and one-act plays. In addition, students can participate in a variety of social activities and fund raising events.
South Florida Cappies Critics
The Cappies, "Critics and Awards Program," is a program through which high school theatre and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, write reviews, and publish those reviews in local newspapers. At the end of the year, the student critics vote for awards that are presented at a formal Cappies Gala, where students perform songs and sketches from nominated shows. Reviews written by North Broward Cappies critics are regularly published locally and North Broward critics and thespians regularly earn distinguished awards at the South Florida Cappies Gala.
