Academic Programs


Theatre at Vistamar

The Theatre Department is a vibrant part of the Vistamar Community.  Our inclusive program has grown each year because we understand that education in the arts provides a creative foundation, tools and techniques to express oneself, collaboration skills, project-based learning, leadership and managerial skills, and an understanding and appreciation of arts in the context of our collective history and the world.  Theatre is most powerful when it can not only reflect, but influence, society. That is our goal. Performance opportunities abound for expert and novice alike. We have students who have gone on to be professional artists, artisans, actors, dancers, singers and musicians, as well as students who are exploring these areas for the first time.

Theatre Performance Opportunities

Performance and Crew opportunities outside the classroom include:

Main Stage Theatre Productions (Fall Play, Winter Play, Spring Musical)
Technical Theatre Support of Productions
Pit Orchestra Support for the Musical(s)
Acting and behind-the-scenes roles on various video productions
Student directed, written, and produced productions

The final "bonus" production of the Vistamar 2021-2022 theatre season was The Wolves, a 2016 play by Sarah DeLappe.

This production was entirely student run, directed by Ike T. '22 and produced by Paloma H. '23, and Syd D. '23.

The Wolves premiered Off-Broadway in September 2016 at The Duke at 42nd Street and was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centers on the experiences of high school girls through their weekly Saturday morning pre-game soccer warmups.
