Residential High School - Drama Program

Emerging actors attend the Drama program to develop the skills and awareness necessary to pursue a career in the theatre. The demanding two-year curriculum is built on a conservatory model and offers classes in acting technique, voice and speech, theatre movement, dance, singing, and special topics related to the actor’s craft.

Students apply for the SCGSAH Drama program in the 10th grade and attend for the final two years of high school. Along the way, students perform in a variety of settings, including scene presentations, showcases, and main stage productions. Seniors have the opportunity to attend the Unified Theatre Auditions in Chicago, where they audition for placement in top college theatre schools.
