At ANC we are proud of our rich dramatic arts program, which offers both academic and extracurricular opportunities for students to perform.
Classroom courses include Performing Arts Portfolio, Instrumental Ensemble, Choral Ensemble and Dance Team. Students are also invited to audition for our Fall Play or Spring Musical.
There are also many opportunities for our technical theater students: courses in Set Design/Building and Costuming, as well as participation in all aspects of our main stage productions. We strive to have the technical aspects of our Fall Play and Spring Musical be as student-led as possible including costuming, set design and building, stage crew, lighting, sound, props and makeup. Each year around 50% of the student population participates in an extracurricular production either on stage or back stage.
