The Theatre Program at Providence Academy has grown from one elective drama class to a program that offers three levels of MS Speech & Drama and Upper School electives that include: Introduction to Theatre, Acting, and Directing.
Additionally, as part of the Extra Curricular offerings at Providence, our PA Players produce 5 shows a year. These include the Upper School Fall Show, Minnesota State High School League One Act and a Spring Musical. The MS Players present a Winter Play in January and The MS Melodrama in March.
As members of the MSHSL Region 4A One Act contest, PA has advanced to Section Contest during the 2012-2013, 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years.
Performing Arts Center Addition
With the addition of a Performing Arts Center, scheduled for completion in December of 2016, Theatre opportunities will expand to include additional course electives, All School Musicals, L/MS Plays and Musicals, and a summer community theatre experience for all ages.
The Performing Arts Center is expected to be the premier performance venue in the West Metro with state-of-the-art light and sound technology, scene and costume shops allowing students to learn the craft of design, as well as a dance studio and rehearsal space.
