Professional Theatre Career Pathway

The Mesa Verde Professional Theatre CTE Pathway is a expansive program for students interested in acting, creative writing, set design, costume design, developing their leadership skills, or simply creating some of the best memories which you'll treasure years later. 

Many students associate theater for acting. While the program is ideal for students interested in theatrical performance, it is also designed to provide all students with skills that most companies and entrepreneurs value such as: 

  • Project planning
  • Collaborating in a team setting
  • Public speaking
  • Management/Leadership skills

Students interested in the theatre program start with Beginning Drama. If you are hooked after that, to complete the CTE program and receive special recognition at graduation, you will need to also enroll in the Writing for the Stage course, as well as the capstone course - Stage Direction.
