Fine Arts » Theater


Students at FHC have several opportunities to participate in drama and theater both during the school day as part of the school curriculum and after school in different enrichment opportunities.

In the fall and winter terms, Kate Kinyon will direct two casts of a musical production as part of our after school programming. At the end of each term the Junior Stars cast (Pre-Kindergarten-2nd grade) and the Rising Stars cast (2nd-6th grade) will perform for friends and family. 

In addition to our collaboration with Kate Kinyon, we foster a love and appreciation for theater within the following grades:
  • Fifth graders present the Living Stations of the Cross during Lent. The students perform all roles in this moving reenactment of the final journey of Jesus Christ. 
  • Sixth grade students create puppets and write a science related show that they perform for our youngest Bulldogs.  
  • Seventh grade students participate in the beautiful dramatic telling of the birth of Christ each year at our Christmas Pageant. They begin rehearsing for this in music class a month prior to the performance.
  • Eighth graders spend their music classes learning and rehearsing for the annual eighth-grade play which they finance through their own fundraising. It is viewed as their gift to the school and is one of the culminating events of the eighth grade year and of student life as an FHC Bulldog. Rehearsals begin in January and continue in music class and after school up until the May performances.
