• Theatre Arts Electives

    Students at EHS have the opportunity to take an introductory theatre arts course with no prerequisite. After that they may choose to continue to expand on their theatre knowledge and develop specific skills related to various aspects of theatre education through instructor recommendation and auditions. 

    The following courses are available in our theatre department with others from the Alabama Course of Study considered as advanced theatre students pursue different theatre paths. 

    • The fee for any theatre course is $20. 

    • A separate application and $20 fee (shirt included) is required for students who would like to join the Drama Club. Drama Club members do NOT have to take a theatre class to join. 

    To begin theatre studies, all students must take and successfully complete the following course:

    • Theatre Arts I

    With instructor approval, students may request the following as a second theatre elective:

    • Theatre Arts II

    • Technical Theatre Production I 

    After completion of two theatre courses or after TA I with instructor approval (based on theatre portfolio/interview), students may request the following courses for further study:

    • Technical Theatre Production II

    • Technical Theatre Production III

    • Costuming Design and Construction II

    • Costuming Design and Construction III

    • Scenic Design and Construction II

    • Theatre Management II

    • Makeup Design and Application II

    • Acting for the Camera II

    • Acting for the Camera III

    • Playwriting II

    The advanced theatre course requires an audition and participation in district and state festivals as well as year-round commitment to work on any productions or events hosted by the theatre department. 

    • Theatre Arts III--auditions are in the spring

    An additional course is Elements of Arts Literacy. This is a modified theatre course that allows for the intersection of theatre education and special education. Peer students are invited to be part of this course if suitable for the needs of the enrolled students.
