As they advance through the program, they develop a deep knowledge of production design, lighting, stage combat, and other skills essential to creating a professional theatrical experience.
At the end of their journey, each student has the opportunity to write, direct, cast, and produce his own play that is performed for an audience of peers and faculty members. Our theater program is designed to foster creative expression and personal growth - allowing students to explore their unique talents while honing their craft.
Middle School Drama Program
At Pioneer Academy we have theater courses for 5th through 8th graders. The purpose of these courses is to develop students’ creative imaginations, self-knowledge, and social relatedness through active participation in a variety of improvised dramatic activities.
Creative drama is a process that can be used with people of all ages to access spontaneity, solve problems, teach through action, and create community. We specifically use storytelling, acting, puppetry, and pantomime performances to develop students' public speaking, self-expression, and emotional intelligence.
Through engaging participation in different improvised dramatic activities students are learning to express themselves comfortably and uniquely.
The theater program at Pioneer Academy offers an incredible opportunity to explore the creative and performing arts. Students have a chance to learn how to express themselves through music, acting, and storytelling. Our talented faculty of professionals provide students with high-quality instruction while fostering a safe and inspiring learning environment.

Every Year at Drama Club, we work on a different play and perform for our parents and students at the end of the year. In our drama clubs, students are not only acting but are also helping with the design of the set or with the creation of props. Seeing and experimenting with all the aspects of staged plays teaches them about diverse perspectives.
