Theatre

Theatre teaches skills that last a lifetime. Play production involves more than memorizing lines and performing onstage.

The Liberty Theatre Department offers a wide variety of experiences for thespians and technical theatre students of all ages. We have an intimate Black Box series of productions as well as our Main Stage Performances. We also compete in TAPPS One Act Play Competition and Speech Competition. We are a proud member of the Dallas Summer Musical Awards, the Betty Buckley Awards and the Schmidt and Jones Awards. We are also active in the International Thespian Society in Troupe 6505.

Upcoming Shows

The 2021-2022 theme for our Fine Arts Theatre Department is “Once upon a time…a year to Dream Big!”
