Our Theatre Education curriculum sets The Village School apart in the area of Fine Arts Education, combining academic, practical and production education opportunities for all ages from Kindergarten to High School, including the IB Diploma Program in Theatre.
For more than 20 years, our after-school Theatrical performance program (VRT) has given students many opportunities to stage, produce and present musicals and dramatic theatre, experiencing first-hand the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd. Renamed Village Repertory Theatre 5 years ago, our theatre in residence program produces more than 6 plays and musicals per school year and encompasses all ages.
In addition, Theatre Education 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
- Access to Digital Theatre+ .
These experiences help enhance student’s personal exploration into their creative passions and to complement their Theatrical Education.
