Students are introduced to Theatre education in grade school, building a foundation of sequenced skills that will help them to express themselves with confidence and poise throughout school and their life. The skills acquired in Theatre Education help many students to find their passions, to express themselves fully and, often, discover their own identity.
Our theatre curriculum is a rarity among area public and private schools, and sets The Village School apart in the area of fine arts.
Village Repertory Theatre: VRT is an after-school theatre experience that gives students the opportunity to stage and produce a musical or dramatic production.
Our Theatre Education program gives many opportunities for our students to experience theatre, theatre education and professional performers, workshops and master classes presented by some of the most well respected Theatre Companies, educators and performers from Houston, around the country and throughout the world. A few of the experiences our students were able to participate and engage in the past School Year have been: Master Classes with “Frantic Assembly”, Performance by: The Houston Grand Opera, Improvisation classes and performances with Yale’s “Exit Players”, Choreography Master Classes with Gavin King, and access to Digital Theatre+ . These experiences help enhance student’s personal exploration into their creative passions and to complement their Theatrical Education.
