The Hudson Middle School Theater Program emphasizes giving students students life skills through acting and stage tech. In theater class you will develop communication skills, body movement, basic light and sound tech, makeup and costume creation. Students will also learn about a variety of tools and building techniques to help imagine, create, and maintain sets and construction projects. We work in groups to create performances at all levels.

Our theater company puts on at least 4 performances each year: UIL One Act Play competition, a holiday show, Hudson's spring open-audition dinner theater, and a 2 act spring production. Our theatre students house some of the most creative and talented students in Garland ISD! We pride ourselves on helping students find where they belong and we welcome all students with open arms!
