Update on "The Wedding Singer"
It is with heavy heart that Saint Mary's Theatre announces the cancellation of our spring musical "The Wedding Singer" at San Joaquin Delta College, due to Covid-19 restrictions and closures by both SMHS and SJDC. If circumstances allow, we will attempt to mount a scaled-down version of the show at a later date.
If you purchased tickets to the show:
  • If you purchased tickets online or through the Delta Center for the Arts box office, contact Delta College directly for a refund. Their number is 209-954-5110. 
  • If you purchased tickets in the Saint Mary's main office, and would like a refund, bring your tickets as proof of purchase to the main office, and we will handle your request. However, call first to make sure the campus and/or office is open: 209-957-3340.

Saint Mary’s Theatre is not only a part of the Arts department — it's also a theatre company run by students who receive all the tools necessary to lead a professional theatre company. From company management to theatrical design, our students thrive in all roles and guide others to do the same. Students are mentored into leadership positions, which amply prepares many alumni for a college arts path with professional guidance.
 
Our curriculum covers performance, improvisation, scene study, theatrical design, stage combat, and theatre history. In addition, we produce two shows a year.
 

DRAMA COURSES

Drama Theory and Performance
This course utilizes pantomime, improvisation, and script study to enhance creative expression, confidence, and teamwork. It is also useful preparation for public speaking, politics, law, business, and any profession where self expression and communication are important. Students are exposed to theatre terms and elements of production including writing, staging, costuming, etc. Every student will regularly perform in class. Good attendance and participation are essential.
 
Intermediate Drama
This course is a continuation of Drama Theory & Performance. Increased emphasis and advancement are placed on scene studies, the application of principles learned in #8310 and further improving the performance level of the student. Each student will have special reports to submit on more specific and concentrated areas of theatre.
 
Drama Special Studies
This course is specifically designed for instruction, research, scene studies, etc. outside of the classroom. In order to meet state requirements timewise for proper transcript credit, the student will be required to do field work on the high school's fall or spring plays. A contract must be signed guaranteeing attendance at all scheduled rehearsals and performances. Failure to do so will be reflected in the grade for the period. Course can be repeated.
