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.
