"We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams."
-Ronald Dahl
The Eagle Theatre Company is a first-class educational environment that serves as the ultimate creative incubator for the next generation of artists, thinkers and leaders in theatre and performance.
Our department is dedicated to balancing high–quality productions and performance work with rigorous academic study. We average five to six productions annually, with additional fine arts related activities and fundraisers. The development of a student's creativity, imagination, and work ethic is a high priority.
 
The faculty, staff, and students in partnership with the school, parents, and community will strive to meet the individual creative and academic needs of these students. Through innovative, dynamic, and rigorous theatre curricula, students will develop great opportunities for postsecondary education and the workforce.
