2021 One-Act Festival!

Every year the students in the Advanced Acting and Advanced Theatre Production classes produce a One-Act festival that we perform at the end of the semester. This year, the only difference is the productions are available on-demand for you to watch!

Throughout the semester our students have worked as the director, stage managers, designers, and actors to create fully student run productions. So everything you see in these productions is due to the tremendous effort and time that our students have dedicated to these productions.

This year we have three seniors leading the charge: Emma Craig, Clare Fesalbon, and Morgan Honner.

In addition to producing the one-act plays, our students have also been working on a Theatre Fair project. Just like the classic science fair project, students have chosen their own research topic that is of interest to them and have put what they learned together in a website for all to see. All of this research was self promoted, it's pretty amazing what they learned on their own!

About Our Program

At Bishop Blanchet, our drama department's motto is "Truth and Courage." Whether students intend to pursue a career in theatre or are simply looking to try something new, we believe that making theatre cultivates creativity, sensitivity and enthusiasm in young people, and our program offers a supportive environment where students can make bold choices. 
 
The drama department offers a comprehensive three-part sequential acting program, three classes in theatre design, and a three-show season: a fall play, a student directed one-act festival, and a spring musical.
 
Students can participate in the performances both on stage acting and behind the scenes with one of our five crews: Stage Crew, Costume Crew, Hair and Makeup Crew, Marketing Crew, and Stage Management.
