Philosophy Towards Training Students in Theatre
The Enloe High School Theatre Department offers students the opportunity to explore and excel in theatre through classes, clubs and performance opportunities. We challenge students to learn and create theatre in original ways. Together students and teachers create the very best that both have to offer. Process is as important as product in Enloe Theatre. We involve students in the dynamics of their experience. We try to meet the needs of all students from those who have an interest to those who want to make theatre their life’s commitment.
