• Program Philosophy:

    You do not have to have "talent" to be successful in theatre.  A good attitude, determination to keep trying, and an openness to learning art is all that is needed to be successful.  

    Both beginners and experienced performers can find a place in Goodnight’s Theater Arts program, where emphasis is placed on personal growth through taking creative risks. Theater is a place for students to explore their emotions, expand their imagination, build their confidence, and develop their own, unique voice. 

    In addition to theater-specific skills and knowledge, students learn life skills in public speaking, interpersonal communication, creative problem-solving, and collaboration, as well as develop social-emotional skills such as empathy, focus, and resilience. In the process, students gain a greater knowledge of themselves, and develop deep relationships with friends and teachers that often continue long after eighth grade.
