“Ronald Reagan said, “The arts and humanities teach us who we are and what we can be. They lie at the very core of the culture of which we’re a part.”

The students at Bishop Chatard deserve a program that has a strong foundation so that their creativity and self-expression is supported in every way. It is not about creating theatre stars but rather, kids who find their voice; confidence; joy; and a stronger sense of self. That is not to say that we are not going to prepare them for a career in the performing arts—we will! However, the bigger picture is to enhance their gifts by giving them the tools, support, and confidence to be better performers on-stage and better people off-stage.”
…BCHS Theatre Director Holly Stultz
