Arts Home at CHS

Students who participate in the performing arts gain essential lifelong skills such as teamwork, persistence, discipline, responsibility, reliability, time management, problem solving, and courage.  They also develop specific performance talents, express their creativity, and make friends across grade boundaries.  Performances are open to the entire community and enrich the local cultural life - these young performers are good!  Donations of volunteer time and resources from the community are critical to keeping these rich opportunities available.

What is Encore?

Founded by Carrboro High School parents who believe a thriving arts program is essential for a comprehensive high school education, 
Encore! is composed of parents, students, administrators, teachers, and community members who support the performing arts at Carrboro High School. Our vision is to enable the Carrboro High School's arts programs to become an integral part of the area's vibrant arts community. Encore! provides enrichment opportunities, financial support, and logistical assistance for the arts programs and student performing arts groups.


A new school year is beginning at Rydell High in 1958, and with it ends the summer romance between girl-next-door Sandy Dumbrowski (Ally Copenhaver) and bad boy-greaser Danny Zuko (Josh Rubenstein).  When Sandy unexpectedly enrolls as the new student at Rydell, it makes everyone question who they are and where they fit in. Featuring iconic songs like "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightning," and "We Go Together," Grease chronicles the challenges and choices teenagers faced during and since the era of rock 'n' roll.
