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.
