Performing Arts

For students with musical interest and theater talent, the performing arts program is designed to increase individual ability. The performing arts program enlivens the cultural life of the Hoban community.

One credit of Visual or Performing Arts is required for graduation.

Music Program

The music courses may satisfy the requirement at many universities for a unit in visual and performing arts. All students with musical and acting ability are encouraged to use it by participating in the choral, steel drum band and/or theater programs. Some cocurricular time commitment is necessary for membership in both organizations, but the benefits are extensive.

Participants in performing ensembles perform at the Winter and Spring Fine Arts Festivals and in the annual Ohio Solo and Ensemble Contest held in late January or early February.

Theater Program

Participation in theater allows students to gain knowledge about the theater through hands-on learning. Whether you choose to perform on stage or work behind the scenes, you will learn about theater, grow as an individual and enjoy the close-knit family of the theater program.
