The Arts

Overview

Welcome to the Arts!

It’s about artistic expression.  There is an arts concert, event, play or art exhibition every month during the school year.

Our performance students consistently receive special and statewide recognition at regional theatre and music festivals, visual artists take high honors at county and state competitions and St. Francis dancers perform in concert, special events, competitions and liturgies.

An integral part of the school curriculum and community, our art students develop their interests with beginning through advanced classes in music, theatre, dance and visual arts.

One Act Show by the SF Players
January 30, 31 (Wednesday, Thursday) at 7:00 p.m.

One Act - Girl

Come to the theatre and see the performance of: Girl – A Devised Ensemble Project

What is it like to be a girl in America? In this dynamic, original one-act, 50 young women unpack this question through text, movement, and multimedia. Using an ethno-drama approach, students conducted individual interviews, wrote poetry, and shared their real-life stories to uncover their reactions to the challenges adolescent girls face, and the impact the actions of their peers and adults have in their lives. These artists make meaning of their collective experiences, and show us the beauty, resilience, and strength it takes to be a girl today.
