Dear Parent or Guardian,

    I am extremely excited about starting a great year for the theatre arts program at Richland High School.  I have exciting plans for this school year and look forward to witnessing the Rebel spirit live on stage! This year we will have three mainstage productions; a Musical, a One Act Play (competition piece), and a Fall Show.  In addition, Theatre I, Theatre II, and Theatre III/IV classes will perform several showcases and productions throughout the school year. Additional activities will be scheduled as the year progresses so the students will have many opportunities to become involved.  Students will need to watch the Theatre Callboard and social media sites for information on these events.

    Theatre Arts is an important class and a vital part of the overall curriculum here at Richland High School.  Along with theatre skills, this class builds self-esteem, as well as developing important communication skills that are used in everyday life.

    With this class comes responsibility, and the program can only be successful if the support exists between teacher, student, and parents/guardian.  Please consider joining the Richland Theatre Booster Club. Please contact Julie Martin, the Booster Club Chair, with any questions regarding the Rebel Rousers at rhstheatreboosterclub16@gmail.com.  The Theatre Booster Club is a great place to get involved and show your support.

    Please review this handbook for comprehensive information on class rules, consequences, and needed supplies as well as information on the course including: course description, expectations, and grading policies.  You will also find information on how to get involved in the department during after school hours including: audition information and tips, crew sign-ups, and participation in the RHS TheatRebels and the International Thespian Honor Society.

    We have an eventful year ahead of us; I hope to see you in attendance at all our activities.
