Theatre Department

The Theatre department is quite busy with Fiddler on the Roof rehearsals (shows begin Oct 27th), collaborating with the amazing music department. The cast and crew have been invited to tour Portland Center Stage and then watch a performance of the Tony Award winning musical, "Fun Home." The tickets and the bus are provided by an anonymous benefactor in Portland. This will occur October 19th. On October 6th the Theatre 3/4 class was invited to attend the Oregon Arts Summit at the Portland Hilton. They will hear the playwright, Tony Kushner, deliver the keynote speech after which the students were invited to meet with Mr. Kushner in a private gathering for discussion about the arts as a career. Tony Kushner is is an American playwright and screenwriter. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1993 for his play Angels in America. He co-authored with Eric Roth the screenplay for the 2005 film Munich, and he wrote the screenplay for the 2012 film Lincoln. Both movies were critically acclaimed, and he received Academy Award nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay. For his work, he received a National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama in 2013.
