THEATRE ARTS AT CURLEY IS
The Blackfriars' Theatre presents two major theatrical productions each school year, one in late November and the other in mid March. The goal of Blackfriars is to involve as many students as possible in their productions, either on the stage or behind the scenes. Rehearsals for the shows are determined by the schedules of the production staff and cast members.
In addition to the two productions, Blackfriars’ also sponsors a least one field trip per year to a professional theatrical presentation. The organization also sponsors an annual Bus Trip to New York City to see the Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall. Every two years, there is also a trip in June to London, England where the participants experience theatre in the famous West End Theatre District. We made this trip in June 2012. This trip include theatre workshops as well as experiencing performances.
In recent years, Blackfriars’ has made substantial upgrades to both our lighting and sound system in the school auditorium with the financial assistance of several alumni and friends of our theatre program. Most recently, the auditorium has been air-conditioned. We are grateful for the completion of the Holthaus Center For The Arts which gives Blackfriars' larger dressing rooms and storage rooms.
