  • The theater program at Brighton continues to flourish while developing our students' acting and stage potential!

    At the high school level, we offer coursework in both acting and directing as electives.  The curricular program is closely aligned with NYS ELA and Theater Arts standards and sequentially builds on aspects of the use of movement, voice, and choice to inform students' performance choices.

    There are active drama clubs in both middle school and high school. We currently produce one musical each year at the middle school level. At the high school level, there are a vast number of performances that take place each year for students to participate in.  

    A unique opportunity for high school students to experiment with their creative talents is the Not-So-Very 24-Hour PlaysOver three afternoons, the students write, audition for, direct, and perform their own acts.

    Many of our Brighton students also participate actively in community and summer theater groups.  Our goal is to nurture an appreciation for theatre for everyone!  

    On a state-wide level, NYSTEA, The New York State Theatre Education Association, is an organization whose members are educators and artists.  The Annual High School Theater Conference, sponsored by NYSTEA every January, is well attended by Brighton High School students.
