Diamond Bar High School Theatre is a comprehensive standards based program that exposes students to all aspects of theatre and provides opportunities for students to pursue in-depth theatre studies in musical theatre, acting, directing, playwriting, improvisation, and theatrical design. Students have the opportunity to audition to perform in over 8 shows a year. These include two main stage shows a year (Fall Play and Spring Musical), as well as student-run productions (Winter Show, Wellness Show, Children’s Theatre, Spring Showcase), and monthly Cabaret shows. Intermediate and Advanced Drama students participate and compete in theatre festivals during the year, as well as the Disney Performing Arts Workshop. Theatre Performing Arts Academy students get hands on real world experience through workshops, after-school classes, and the ability to join the production crew as makeup, costume, and prop crew members. Whether they want to work towards admission to a college theatre program or just want to have fun while increasing their confidence and presentation skills, students are supported throughout the program expert coaches in musical theatre, acting, improv, and theatrical design.
