Performing Arts

At Prairie the art is in the performance.  And through a creative, hands-on program that includes the disciplines of music, theatre, and technical theatre our students embrace an array of both curricular and extracurricular performing arts experiences that span Pre-Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade.

We look forward to helping students discover their own artistic selves as we sing, play, compose, act, script, practice, design, construct, and crew. We believe that when we explore the performing artist in each of us and experience passion and understanding, we are all transformed. Writer Annie Dillard states, “Beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there”.  At The Prairie School, we like to think our work together celebrates just that. Putting the arts in motion begins with YOU!  Won’t you join us?
