VISTA Productions

The combined theater department of Visitation School and Saint Thomas Academy offers numerous areas of involvement to create theatrical productions throughout the school year. There are three main stage productions a year as well as a comedy improv show and a Middle School production in the winter.

Opportunities include performing, acting, singing, dancing, scenic and technical crews, costuming, script writing, stage management, box office and choreography. Auditions for each production are posted throughout the school and on each school's websites. Production dates are in the school calendar.

Following are some of the opportunities for students:

  • Scenic Crew and Tech Crew Develops and supplies technical support to theater and various other productions in cooperation with STA. Meeting times are after school and weekends. Must be accepting of others and willing to try new things.
    • Running Crew Runs all technical aspects of a particular production in cooperation with STA. Meets at all tech rehearsals and performances. Must be accepting of others and follow production protocol. Chosen from Scenic and Tech Crews (prioritized by contribution and seniority). Must commit to ALL rehearsals, performances and strikes.
  • Theater Council Provides student input and leadership from all areas of theater (producing, costumes, crew, Improv, etc.) in cooperation with STA. Meets every Wednesday after school and three or four special weekend meetings. Responsibilities include providing leadership throughout the school year and planning events. Chosen through an election process.
