    Blue Devil Productions

    The Performing Arts Program at Central High School, otherwise referred to as Blue Devil Productions,’ goal is to produce shows and opportunities that reach out to the unique talents of all students wanting to experience a theatrical performance. It is our mission to create and produce meaningful shows.  There is at least one musical production and main stage play.  The Drama Club, which produces a few of its own shows, and Thespian Charter (a.k.a. The Rhinocorns) are also part of Blue Devil Productions.

    Theatre Classes

      • Introduction to Acting: This class is for beginner actors interested in trying acting but may not be ready for the big stage. Students learn pantomime, improvisation, written skits, and prepare their own duets and monologues. This class also counts as an elective AND a Language Arts credit.


      • Stagecraft and Construction: For students interested in extending their knowledge in the technical areas of theater. Students get hands-on
        experience in set construction/painting techniques, stage lighting, production staffs, makeup, sound, properties
        and directing.


      • Theatre Performance: This class is for advanced actors who have successfully completed Introduction to Acting or have a signature from the teacher. The class prepares and presents an improvisational show as well as a one act production. Students prepare resumes and headshots and have mock auditions in front of a panel of professionals from the community.
