This is my twenty-second year with O'Donnell Middle School and am excited to open the door to the magical world of live theatre with the energetic young people of ODMS. Theatre is a mirror to the world. It's reflection of relationships and events give people the chance to see and analyze the actions and growth of our changing society. This opportunity is very important to middle school students who are at the point in their lives when they are discovering who they are and where their place in society will be.
Students learn the skills and techniques used in professional theatre, and are encouraged to pursue specific aspects of the art in which they are particularly interested and/or show an aptitude. Theatre requires many different kinds of talents and skills to create quality productions. Because of this diversity, there is a place for each student to grow and succeed. In Theatre Arts, everyone can be a star!!
