When the curtain goes up opening night at a Visitation production— whether musical or drama—the stage lights reflect on the extraordinary efforts of each student.
Theater at Visitation is a community-building experience wherein our students of many talents find their role within the broader context of theater. Students design and sew costumes, build and paint the sets, design the program cover, serve as stage managers, shine the spotlight, and perform the musical scores to bring the production to life.
Acting on a Visitation stage is more than following the script. Actors are encouraged to fully develop their characters, bringing the knowledge they have learned through their studies and life experiences to the context of the script to mold characters that are vibrant and compelling. Actors benefit from the experiences and direction of an acting coach, choreographer, and music director.
Visitation welcomes young men from many Catholic high schools to our stage, adding energy to the productions and creating friendships that span many performances. Conversely, Visitation students often audition for and perform in shows at area boys' schools, expanding performance opportunities and building a citywide theater community.
