DHS Reveliers Theatre Philosophy
Theatre teaches skills that last a lifetime. Play production involves more than just memorizing lines and performing on stage. While working on stage and backstage, students grow in self-confidence, self-awareness, initiative, responsibility, sacrifice, dedication, leadership, creative thinking, problem solving, goal setting, time management, group dynamics, and group decision making. We also learn applications of practical skill -- carpentry, use of power tools, design applications, painting techniques, interior decoration, public relations, costuming, makeup, accounting, visual effects, and sound and video techniques. Thank you for appreciating our creative efforts; and thank you for supporting the arts at Dickinson High School.
General Theatre Course Descriptions
The Theatre Department at Dickinson High School offers a variety of classes for students interested in all areas of theatre. In order to gain a fine arts credit for graduation students can take Theatre Arts 1 which offers all areas of theatre including acting, backstage work, and musical theatre. Students can continue their coursework in theatre by taking an upper level theatre class such as Theatre 2, 3, or 4.  They will study more in depth acting theories, scene work, directing, and playwriting. Some upper level classes are even offered the opportunity of writing a screenplay and using fellow actors to perform the original script. Those students that like to work behind the scenes can enjoy lots of design work including lights, costumes, and sound as well as learn how to build the sets for the upcoming productions. Finally, students can take the Theatre Production class if they are interested in working on a production full time. These students are offered the opportunity of receiving credit for performing shows throughout the year for the school and the community. Productions include the fall show, winter show, and the UIL One Act Play. The beginning level theatre classes often work on a production or showcase in order to share with family and friends at the end of the school year. Theatre offers many different choices for many different students. You don’t have to be a born star to love theatre at DHS; there is fun for everyone no matter who you are.
The mission of the Dickinson Independent School District is to ensure that all students have safe and successful learning opportunities that help them reach their full potential and add quality throughout their lives.
