Production Commitment

Students who take part in a Theatrical Society production are making the serious personal commitment that their participation in the production is a priority in their lives.


Parental consent is required for student participation in Theatrical Society productions.

  • Student must be academically eligible to participate in a production.

  • Members must attain a passing grade in five major subjects by the closing of each marking period to participate. A major subject is defined as a class that meets five times within a rotation.

  • Any student receiving services under an IEP may be declared academically eligible by the Principal provided that all other eligibility policies are met, and the student is passing four subjects.

  • Any student passing four major subjects but not five may be declared academically eligible by the Principal provided that they enter into an academic/behavioral contract.
