Students
There are many ways you can be a part of our program's activities, both in and outside of class, that are listed below.

CLASSES:
  • Theatre I -  Theatre I is a beginners class for actors. Here students get to learn the basics of theatre and the art of acting, develop performing skills, and get to take part in fun projects/activities such as scene writing and performing, monologues, and music videos.
    • IMPORTANT: If any new coming students have experience in acting and feel as if they would like to override Theatre I and go straight into Advanced Theatre, contact our Director Tia Mapes. Contact info found here: Contact Information
  • Advanced Theatre -  Advanced Theatre is a higher level class for actors where they get to develop their craft more in depth and thoroughly compared to Theatre I. Here students get to audition and be a part of the One Act, which is a short play piece that we bring to District Competition and in some cases States Competition, write, direct, and act in student crafted one acts (which are all featured in Boca High's A Night of Theatre performance at the end of the year), and work on monologues, etc. 
    • IMPORTANT: Only Advanced Theatre students may be involved in acting and teching the One Act that's taken to District and State Competition.
  • American Musical Theatre -  American Musical Theatre (AMT) is one of the best classes offered at Boca High! In this class students work on large group performances, which are taken to both District Competition and State Competition, take part in the Spring Musical (whether your passion is singing and dancing on stage or working on lights, sound, costumes, and makeup backstage), and our famous mock Broadway Auditions. 
    • IMPORTANT: Only students enrolled in the American Musical Theatre class can act in the musical. ***If a student that's not enrolled in the class wishes to be a part of the production, however, they may audition for a tech position. This is a 7th hour class. 

NON-CLASSES: 
  • The Drama Club -  The Drama Club meets weekly on Tuesdays in Ms. Mapes classroom (room 2-123) during lunch. Drama Club Members get to play theatre games, bond with friends at Drama Club Picnic, get updates and news on upcoming events, and get closer within our 2564 family.
  • The Fall Play -  The fall play takes place practically as soon as school starts up. Anyone in the school, drama club members or not, can audition to act or tech in the production. All actors and techs receive community service hours for being part of the production. Contact our Director Ms. Mapes for more details. 
  • ***The Spring Musical (TECH ONLY) -  Any student in the school can audition to work on the tech team for the spring musical. This includes lighting, sound, props, stage crew, set design and construction, costumes, and makeup. Ushers for the musical are usually picked through a sign-up sheet (no audition needed). All techs that aren't in the class receive community service hours. Talk to our Director Ms. Mapes for further details.
