The theatre program at Tartan High School contributes to the development of the student as a whole person by:
- Enabling students to grow in service to community, team building, and respect and responsibility for others
- Providing an opportunity for students to "stage" their talents and be "competitive" in a positive environment.
- Allowing access to learning not available in the classroom - building life-long appreciation for the works of art, music, and theatre
- Exposing to the experience of the arts in practice and performance as they develop skills, confidence, poise, and critical abilities.
