New to C.H.S. Theatre? Take a look at this "video brochure," an overview of the opportunities available onstage, backstage, and in the classroom. This video looks best in landscape mode (horizontally).
Travel with Mr. Hamen around the Performing Arts Center and other C.H.S. Theatre spaces for a look at the places and people it takes to make a production. This video works well in portrait mode (vertically) on a phone.
NOTE: Because plans for 2020-2021 have not yet been announced due to COVID-19 delays and adjustments, these handouts are from 2019-2020.

WAYS TO STAY INFORMED

Our Facebook page (CentervilleHSTheatre) is where we share fun pictures and posts about what’s happening. Similarly, our Instagram (@CHSTheatreCo) is run by S.T.A.G.E. officers.
Everything we do comes with some kind of handout, form, calendar, or packet. Take time to review what you receive.
We use Band for short-term announcements and reminders. This is our primary method of communication. Download a start-up guide here.
