About Capo Theatre Arts

The Theater Program at Capistrano Valley High School includes a comprehensive performing arts training.  We offer training in Drama, Choir, Pit Orchestra, Stagecraft, and Musical Production.  Three levels of Drama are offered including: Drama 1, Advanced Drama, and Actors' Repertory.  The after school productions are audition-only but are open to all.  Auditions are held during the first week of fall semester for the fall play, and the week before the spring semester for the musical.  Please visit the Visual and Performing Arts tab above to navigate through the Theatre Arts and Stagecraft pages, or visit Choir or Band for more information on those programs.

Here at Capo Drama, we are involved in the International Thespian Society.  The goal of ITS is to honor student excellence in theatre arts.  Upon completing and recording 100 hours of theatre-related activities, a student can opt to be inducted into the ITS, thereby becoming an official, card-carrying Thespian.  These theatre-related activities include being in the cast or crew of a play or musical, attending a play or musical, writing a critique of that performance, being on the Executive Drama Board at school, etc., etc.  See the form to the left for a more detailed explanation of the Thespian Point System.
