Fine Arts


Learning in theatre enhances learning in all other areas. Theatre education enables students to develop intellectually by expanding their capacities for creative thought and expression and by encouraging critical thinking skills. Further, theatre education fosters personal growth, self-confidence, knowledge, and a variety of skills and attitudes that are transferable to a wide range of careers. Participation both on and off stage teaches students to be a part of something bigger than themselves. As Lakeview alumna Kelsey Zottnick once wrote as a student, “Theatre is beautiful because it reflects the human spirit: it is an expression of universal human fears, doubts, and triumphs.” 

Theatre is offered in all divisions and provides opportunities to participate in performing arts productions throughout the school year.
