Advanced Theatre 1, Theatre 2, Theatre 3, Tech Theatre
- This is a performance-oriented class in which monologues, scenes, and scenes from one-act plays and full-length plays will be performed for an audience in a Scene Showcase to be presented toward the end of each semester. The Scene Showcase performances will require after school/evening performances and may require some after school rehearsals (per the CHS Course Handbook). Each scene showcase performance grade will be 1 major grade for the 9 weeks as well as average 50% of your semester exam grade for that semester. The other 50% will be your written exam grade. Failure to attend the scene showcase will result in a ZERO for the major grade for the 9 weeks and the maximum grade you can receive on the semester exam is 50.
ALL Theatre courses
- Attendance at or involvement in at least one performance of BOTH Conroe High School Theatre mainstage productions during the year (see 2014-15 schedule). Admission is free for Theatre Arts students (this is covered by the Course Fee). These are major grades for which you will receive a ZERO if you fail to attend each performance. There is also NO WAY to make up this grade if you miss the performance. The dates for the entire school year are above, so plan accordingly--beginning today.

Those Blooming Kids
Kids bloom just like flowers.
Some for a day, some for a life
And some for just a few hours.
They bloom in all sizes and colors and shapes.
They bloom when we're sleeping.
They bloom when we're awake.
Some kids are perky and hold their heads up.
Some kids are droopy
And some think they suck.
Some kids are mousy and those run in a pack.
Some kids do drugs
And we don't get them back.
Most of the boys are still into toys.
While most of the girls love tattoos or curls.
They're bigger than life
And sharp as a tack.
They're shiny and bright
Despite the skills that they lack.
They're into pop and know each latest movie.
They think I'm a geek because I say groovie.
Retro today is the trend of the latest.
They argue with me that those jeans are the greatest.
And when they reflect on the teachers they knew,
I hope they remember stage left and stage right
And you know who.
So next time you see a kid not blooming just yet,
Be patient and kind
They'll surprise you--I'll bet.
