Bishop Blanchet High School offers many exciting drama and theatre choices to students. Our program includes Beginning Acting, Intermediate Acting and 2 Advanced classes in the art of acting. Our Acting classes offer up to date professional acting techniques rarely taught in a high school setting. We also offer classes in Theatre Set Design, Sound and Lighting Design and Technical Theatre.
