STHS School of Performing Arts
Each year the School of the Arts students work using an overarching theme that serves to guide exploration for the school year.
SoPA Theme 2022-2023 : Identity
This year the actors are tasked with how to portray the concept of Identity. How do you identify yourself, how do others identify you or with you, and how can we explore these questions on stage? Some of the pieces we will explore and create this year will make you feel sad, some joy, and some discomfort, just as we feel in our daily lives.
We will perform a One Act for the Winter Showcase, "Identity Play; or, Who You Are When You Think You Are" by Jon Jory and Jason Pizzarello. The Spring Showcase will consist of student created and directed works.
Please note, all SoPA actors MUST be present at the Showcases.
