PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMENT

Theatre Arts Mission

Providence High Arts Theatre Arts, developed and maintained by DiscoveryOnstage®, is designed to provide for participating high school students a professional level theatrical experience with heavy focus on discipline, technique, and personal development. Through mentorship, class work and performances, students develop the skills necessary for pursuing a career in the arts, gain a greater sense of self-awareness and self-confidence, and further life skills such as imaginative thinking, team building and leadership. The Providence High Arts Theatre Arts Department is premised on the belief that the theatre provides a unique and unparalleled educational opportunity critical to all students no matter their interest or career goal.

Musical Arts Mission

Providence High Arts Musical Arts offers a variety of performing ensembles to meet the needs of all students interested in music. Each ensemble caters to the specific strengths of each student with regard to their musical ability. All ensembles offer performance opportunities and focus on expanding the student’s knowledge and use of music theory, music history, sight-reading methods, vocal techniques, and musical expression. In addition to developing individual musical strengths, each group is designed to teach self-discipline and commitment while working together toward a common goal of excellence and fostering an appreciation of choral and instrumental music.
