Academic Programs


Your Future, the feature length film the students of Vistamar made, has been accepted into its first film festival, the 2020 Marina Del Rey Film Festival. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the film festival will be virtual, but everyone will get a chance to watch it on the Roku channel, Shorts Daily, where the Marina Del Rey Film Festival will take place October 9th - 15th. Stay tuned for details!

Theatre at Vistamar

The Theatre Department is a vibrant part of the Vistamar Community.  Our 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.  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

Be a Part of Our First Production!

In order to adapt to the realities of Distance Learning, the Theatre Department will present several opportunities to provide live performances to our community through Zoom. The first production will be a performative reading of Anna Deavere Smith's theatrical piece,
Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992. This wonderful monologue-based play deals with the racial tensions and history of police violence in Los Angeles that led to the civil unrest of 1992 surrounding the beating of Rodney King. The play provides a ton of opportunities for individual performances, so I'm encouraging everyone who has an interest to get involved. If you'd like to be involved, you can either email Mickey Blaine at or attend an informational Zoom meeting Thursday, August 27th at 1:45pm through the following Zoom link:
