Cascia’s theater program is designed to encourage students to develop acting and improvisation skills on the stage. Students learn basic acting skills and techniques, including stage movement, delivery, projection, presentation, and characterization. Students can also be introduced to the technical aspects of the theater if they so choose, learning more about stage management, stagecraft, set design, lighting, and sound. Some theater courses are offered, but many of the theater offerings are purposefully designed as extracurricular offerings. Each year, the theater department puts on multiple shows, including both stage plays and musicals.
