Life is full of drama, why not join the club?

The Monte Vista Theatre Arts Department is comprised of six parts: Theatre Arts 1, Theatre Arts 2, Theatre Arts 3, Play Production, Stage Crafts, and Drama Club. We work together to put on three productions a year; a fall comedy, a winter drama, and a spring musical. The object of the Drama Club is to heighten school interest in the area of the performing arts. The club will support all Monte Vista drama productions, including plays and improvisational comedy.


MV Performing Arts Presents: The Nit Wits
The Nit Wits by Glenn Hughes is an uproarious comedy centering around Tommy Winter’s quest for college cash. Armed with a little bit of knowledge (often a dangerous thing!), Tommy poses as a psychologist hoping to help people with simple issues. It takes all of Tommy’s ingenuity and the help of his friends to keep things under control once this parade of nitwits comes rolling in!

MV Performing Arts Presents: FOOTLOOSE The Musical 
Footloose first burst onto the silver screen in 1984 and proved to be one of the year’s most successful motion pictures, with such Top Forty hits as its title song and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy" (both of which received Academy Award nominations), plus “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).”
Footloose opened on Broadway on October 22, 1998. The next day, the show broke the box office record for the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where it continued to thrill audiences through July 2000.
And now it’s time to cut loose at Monte Vista!
