St. Genevieve prides itself in being one of the most sought-after schools in terms of its theatre department and arts curriculum. Paramount to St. Genevieve High School’s mission and philosophy is the theatre department’s dedication and commitment to offer the community extraordinary, live-theatre productions and to provide our students the best in arts education.
Skills to last a lifetime!
That is what the Theatre Department provides at St. Genevieve Parish Schools. That, and a whole lot more! The Theatre Department provides our students, from 3rd through 12th grades, with the best in arts education. The mission of the Parish Schools Theatre Department is to serve the entire community with quality family entertainment and to teach the students the importance of the arts.
Many of our students go on to study and work in the industry. We currently have alumni who are actors and actresses, musicians, casting directors, and stage managers. We lay the foundation for them to pursue their dreams – and succeed they do! Not only do they have performance opportunities here on campus, but we have the curriculum to support these endeavors. We provide our students with the opportunity to participate in all aspects of theatre and for some, it is their first time. We ignite their passion and provide them with the tools to become successful in their higher education and in their careers.
The caliber of our shows is unprecedented. Our musicals rival that of Broadway! If acting is a student’s calling, St. Genevieve is the place to be. From “Easing on down the road” with The Wiz to “the farmer and the cowman” of the Old West in Oklahoma!, students and staff display a level of performance unheard of in high school education.
