We’re Thrilled to Announce Our Fall Play!
And Then There Were None
Agatha Christie’s Classic Mystery Thriller
Ten strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder. One by one, they start to die. In this superlative mystery, statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel fall to the floor and break, one by one, as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger.
Cultivating Creativity Through Theater Arts
Aragon High School Drama strives to be a welcoming space for students to explore self expression through the arts of acting and technical theater. Shane Smuin, Aragon’s Director of Theater, believes that theater is a conservatory: a safe space where self expression and personal growth is cultivated, encouraged, and developed.
In Aragon’s Beginning Drama class, students begin the process of self expression through theater games, monologues, scenes, published plays, and original projects.
In Advanced Drama, students deepen their understanding through advanced improvisational work, classical monologues and scripts. Through our partnership with Silicon Valley TheatreWorks, students work with professional playwrights to write their own short plays culminating in an on-stage final performance by professional actors. At the conclusion of the year, the students perform and produce a One-Act Musical.
In Technical Theater, students learn practical hands-on skills and techniques for the creation of sets, designed by Fred Eiras, professional Set Designer, for Aragon Performing Arts’ main stage productions. Through this process, they gain a deeper understanding of the technical and design elements of theater.
