Hunting Hills High School Drama




Welcome to the HHHS Drama webpage! 

The purpose of the page is to have a central place for students, staff and parents to communicate about all things Drama at our school - although it is important to note that the Main Stage show for the year will have its own page with more specific details and information (a link is provided in the Tabs at the top of this page).

It also contains some fun (hopefully!) postings, cartoons and links... please check a few out!

The Drama Advantage at HHHS:

Drama helps people to develop a positive self-concept, an understanding of the world around them, and an appreciation of art as it reflects our society and adds meaning to our world.

Drama encourages learning through "acting out" ~ and kenetic learning is more effective for many students than more traditional lecture and reading based methods.

We offer Drama 9, 10, 20, and 30 ~ allowing students to take Drama up to and including grade twelve and satisfy the graduation requirements for grade twelve courses and 30 level options. Student work is showcased each term on "Theatre Night" and at special events.

In addition, we offer Technical Theatre for students who wish to pursue training and possible future employment in lighting, sound, stagecraft, costuming, and make up.

HHHS also offers credit classes in Advanced Acting and Touring and Musical Theatre 15/25/35 based around the Main Stage show selected for production each school year.
