Welcome to Analy’s Award winning Theatre Arts Department, famous for its track record of challenging and hugely successful performances, presenting at least two major, well-publicized productions per year, as well as monologues and scenes from the Acting Class, and IMPROV nights. The department regularly participates in: The Lenaea Festival, now held this year in Folsom, CA; attends The Ashland Oregon Shakespeare Festival in the Spring, and regularly works with guest artists and regularly attends local theatre productions at the SRJC, SSU, Main Stage West, 6th St. Playhouse, Marin Theatre Company. and Broadway productions in SF.
Theatre Arts at Analy represents a combination of classes – Beginning Acting/Theatre 101, Drama Production Class (performances by students, performances by professional groups and competition in various venues) and a Dance class that includes tap, modern, basics in ballet, hip hop, swing dance and other various styles of dance.
The Department hosts a Theatre Arts/Improv Club for the active Theatre Arts student!
In 2011 the department was nominated by Leslie McCauley of Santa Rosa Junior College’s Theatre Dept. and selected by the American High School Theatre Festival to perform at the FRINGE Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is a great honor for the department! Although we will not be attending as yet as it is quite costly, we keep open the possibility of applying again in the future.
