Tampa Catholic’s Performing Arts Program has blossomed in recent years. With showcases, a fall play, and a spring musical, the Tampa Catholic Theater Department is thriving. Students have the opportunity to grow and learn the art of performing in Intro to Performing Arts, and have the option to continue to foster that growth through Acting 1 and Acting 2 courses. Students are also able to participate in backstage opportunities through the StageCraft: Tech course. Students are also able to take a Film course where they study different film genres, and even create their own.
Per the State of Florida High School Graduation Requirements, all students must complete 1.0 credit of Fine Arts. All freshmen are placed into Intro to Performing Arts to help meet that requirement, with other elective options available as they go into sophomore year.
For students who have a passion for acting and stage management, there is an opportunity to be involved in productions without being in the performing arts courses. Students in Theater TC help to be involved with school productions either through acting, dancing, set building, or backstage assistance.
Theater TC is responsible for the Fall Play and Spring Musical productions.
Theater TC also sponsors the yearly Talent Show during homecoming week!
