Greetings and welcome to the Dripping Springs Middle School Theatre Department! I am tremendously excited about the upcoming year. We are very fortunate to have a school faculty and administration that realizes the importance of cultivating theatre at the middle school level. Building an outstanding theatre program requires the efforts of teachers, students, parents, and community members. This year we need your contributions in time, talent and support. The chance to produce theatre is a privilege, one with the power to move audiences of all ages. Our mission is to instill a deep respect and knowledge of the craft of theatre in its many forms.

This website contains pertinent information about grading policies, classroom rules and expectations, classroom materials, and more. I look forward to working with you as we experience what the wide world of theatre has to offer. Please call me at 858-3444 or email me at larin.hinson@dsisdtx.us if you have questions or concerns. The best time to reach me by phone is after 4:30. If I am unavailable, please leave a detailed message and I will make every effort to respond within 24 hours. I encourage you and your student to use Skyward , Canvas, and my website for quick updates on activities.
