The SJB Theater Program provides an experience that helps to instill confidence, craftsmanship and pride in our young men and offers students the chance to learn the craft of theater through its many disciplines, including:
- Technical Theater Design
- Set Construction
- Costumes Design
Theater partners with our nearby sister school, Saint Joseph High School and provides a wide variety of performing opportunities including four major productions each year: two musicals and two dramatic productions, two located in the SJB Theater and two at SJHS.
In addition to the annual productions, students can participate in the very popular Coffee House, combining Improvisational Comedy and Open Mic Music Acts. Theater students also have the opportunity to participate in two Drama Teachers Association of Southern California competitions in the fall and spring.
The Theater Department of St. John Bosco and Saint Joseph High School Present:
