Urbana High School Theater Mission Statement
The mission of Urbana High School Theater is to provide an educational foundation which enables all students to grow in skill and confidence as a result of creative expression. Affectionately known as the "F-Wing," many of our students interpret the F as "Family;" in essence, much like Theater has throughout history accepted everyone, so does this department. Accepting each other and working together, students will recognize that it is not the end product that determines success, but the process of getting there determines success in theater. It is the place where students can explore, develop and find their imagination, talents, confidence and creativity without feeling judged. Theater is meant to educate and entertain, and through the process of putting on a production, students will learn not only about the theater, but themselves as well.
What is Theater all about?
Theatre Arts is a content arena that is a positive supplement to core studies, encouraging students to perform for their peers and think creatively and critically. Much of the final production that is considered "drama" trickles down to the classroom where students hone speaking and listening skills in a comfortable learning environment and tackle seemingly impossible obstacles with a critical mind, all the while assuming a character much unlike their true selves. Essentially, Drama offers students a safety net to obtain a skill set that will support other academic needs.
Theater is an art form which provides students to come together, to share and build a community of their own, as a result of common passions. Theater allows students to express themselves creatively, discover themselves, and brings them together to work cooperatively for a common good.
