JSerra Theatre is not only a part of the Arts department — it's also a company! Led by theatre veteran and director Elise Ybarra, JSerra Theatre is 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 three shows a year: a Fall play, a Winter production, and a Spring musical. The Fall and Spring shows are rehearsed after school and any student may audition. Theatre students are also encouraged to participate in the ComedySportz improvisational troop, Spirit of the MACY Awards, Cappies Critics and Awards Program, and the Fullerton Theatre Festival.
