Shawna Volpa AHS Theatre Arts Instructor/ Director

The Performing Arts pathway at Atascadero High School focuses on the direct creation of art and entertainment by the individual artist instead of through a secondary physical medium. Performing artists are themselves the medium of creative expression.

The CTE classes include: an Introduction class - Introduction to Theater, a Concentration class -Advanced Acting: Stage and Film and finally a Capstone class, Technical Theater. Students that choose to participate in the CTE Performing Arts Pathway and complete all three classes will have a certificate of completion and a recognition at graduation for their accomplishment.


"CREATIVITY IS THE NEW CURRENCY FOR THE 21st CENTURY!"


Theatre students learn to exhibit creativity in such areas as acting, design, playwriting and directing, What is exciting is that through this process they become confident, well spoken, creative thinkers. Employers are not always aware that theatre experience also helps students learn creative problem-solving techniques that is directly applicable to virtually any job they have. This gives an advantage to those with a performing arts background, in a very competitive world.


This page is a collection of student works completed in one or more of the courses offered.

Madagascar – A Musical Adventure

Take a journey out of the zoo and onto the stage with your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends from the blockbuster DreamWorks film.

Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.
