The Louis St. Laurent Theatre Intensive Program
Launched in 2010. The Louis St. Laurent Theatre Intensive Program is open to students in grades 10 through 12. Members of the company will perform in two theatrical productions during the school year, one being a musical, and the other being a play. Company members will also have the opportunity to experience professional theatre productions as members of the Citadel Students’ Club. Students who register for the High School Theatre Intensive will earn a total of 23 credits. The specific courses are:
Drama 10, 20, 20IB, 30, 30IB (5 credits)
Musical Theatre 12, 25, or 35 (5 credits)
Technical Theatre 12, 25, or 35 (5 credits)
Advanced Acting 15, 25, or 35 (5 credits)
Theatre Appreciation: Citadel Students’ Club (3 credits)
Instruction will take place during the last block of the day for the entire year. Rehearsals for the theatrical productions will be scheduled after school from 3:15 – 5:00, and on select weekends, depending upon the needs of the production. Citadel Theatre performances take place during the evenings, with pre-show and post show seminars held during the lunch hour. There is a fee associated with this program. Fees collected go directly towards purchasing tickets for the Citadel Students’ Club and other professional theatrical performances, and also will be used for master classes, guest artists/instructors, and production costs. Students requesting this program need only to select the Theatre Intensive Program Holding Bin and they will be put into all of the appropriate courses based upon any previous coursework completed. Students will be placed in courses based upon completed prerequisites.
The Theatre Intensive Program is intended for students with significant interest in all aspects of theatre creation and production. Please note that there are rehearsal and performance requirements and commitments that extend beyond normal school hours. Prospective Theatre Intensive Students may also want to consider the International Baccalaureate Theatre course that is offered as a component of Louis St. Laurent’s IB Diploma program.
