Theater originated in ancient Greece. Paragon is the Greek word in the present progressive meaning “continually striving for excellence.” We have dubbed our theater department: Paragon Theater.
Theater classes are offered to both Middle School and High School students. In class, they learn the history of theater, the purposes of theater, parts of the stage, and how to communicate individual characters as well as an overall message with their voices and body language. Students also learn how to plan for productions, use the light and sound equipment, as well as create costumes and makeup. They participate in at least two productions during the school year as well as compete at the NCCSA State Fine Arts Competition in as many as four different categories: humorous monologue, dramatic monologue, duet acting, and choric speaking.
