SJCCA Theatre Mission Statement: “SJCCA Theatre provides a safe artistic outlet for theatre artists to have a sense of belonging and make bold choices through academic rigor, performance, and production. With a focus on knowledge and skill, SJCCA Theatre prepares compassionate artists for a career in theatre arts. Our mission reminds young theatre artists that their art is powerful, and they are powerful.”

Ms. T’s Student Learning Outcomes: 

  • Will discover and demonstrate the elements of acting and theatre history. 
  • Will acquire a basic understanding of theatre pedagogy including terms, methods, and concepts. 
  • Will demonstrate competent applications of the skills necessary in the creation of a performance. 
  • Will acquire a basic understanding of Technical Theatre applications. 
  • Will work to diminish any self-conscious and with the proper reflection transform it into self-respect and self-confidence. 
  • Will be able to properly reflect on not only their personal performance, but the performance of others.  
    • Identify proper technique, what felt unmotivated, and what to improve for next time.  
  • Will feel free to let loose their inhibitions that mentally block their creativity and connection to others. 
    • Not only is this a brave space to make choices and explore, but this is also a safe space- a completely judgement free zone (art is subjective). 
  • Will read plays, analyze the piece of text, and transform them into a performance to gain an appreciation for the creation of theatre and a respect for live art.
