Barrington High School Theatre

  • The Theater Department at Barrington High School provides students with a skills-based education in areas of performance and technical theater. Theater students begin their sequence of studies with one semester of Theater I followed by one semester of Theater II. (Although these classes may be taken in separate years, it is recommended for the classes to be taken in the same year.) Both classes are prerequisites for Actor’s Workshop. These classes may be taken through repeated semesters. Honors credit is available for Actor’s Workshop.

    In addition to curricular programs, the department offers many co-curricular opportunities for students to continue to develop skills as artists and technicians in two main stage plays, one main stage musical, and student directed studio productions. The BHS Drama Club includes over 150 theater enthusiasts that fosters an appreciation of theater, as well as a more sensitive and reflective understanding of the world around them. Annual tour destinations include Illinois High School Theater Festival and Stratford Shakespeare Theater Festival.
