Providence High School’s Film and Theatre Department is dedicated to the further success and enrichment of its students. Students who enroll in any of our film and theatre programs will be socially and intellectually prepared to become enlightened members of society. Exposure to the vast array of artists, performers, vocalists and musicians enhances awareness of the arts in the community and the world. And through hands-on experience, students will continue to learn, explore and excel in the arts as well as take with them life-long tools for success!
Educational research indicates that studying the arts cultivates essential qualities students need to succeed in the 21st century– creativity , cooperation, communication, cultural understanding and problem solving. Students highly involved in arts instruction earned better grades and performed better on standardized tests, performed more community service, watched fewer hours of television, reported less boredom in school and were less likely to drop out of school. (National Educational Longitudinal Study, University pf California-Los Angeles)
PHS students have excelled in theatre and film locally, nationally, and internationally and have been accepted to some of the leading fine arts baccalaureate programs in the country. This success is a result of student determination and hard work, complimented by a challenging and talented faculty and cutting edge programs.
Providence High School is home to the Chaos Ensemble, a group of theatre students dedicated to creating thought provoking drama for young audiences. Each year, students in the ensemble present a play at the Duke Energy Thaetre in Spirit Square in uptown Charlotte.
Providence High School has an active chapter of the International Thespian Society for students who excel in theatre. Parental involvement is appreciated and strongly encouraged through the activities of the theatre booster club. All students are encouraged to audition for school productions, regardless of whether they are currently in a theatre class.
