Berkner High School has a well established theatre arts department and program which has been a joy to become Head Theatre Director of this year! At Berkner we produce various shows throughout the year on our mainstage including a fall play, a fine arts musical, one act play competition, and a district-wide children's show. In our understage space, we produce annual holiday class plays, a theatre 2 improv comedy show, a theatre 3/4 student directed showcase, and an end of the year theatre one class origonal works showcase. In addition to our show schedule, we participate in the Texas Thespian Festival and the Dallas Summer Musical High School Musical Theatre Awards. Many students audition for and recieve scholarships for competitive collegiate programs in theatre and go on to pursue careers in the performing arts.
