A Different Schedule for 2018-19 School Year

Because of construction in the Fine Arts area of Temple High, there will be differences from past years in classroom locations and when shows are normally produced.

October 25-28, 2018 — Performances of the musical Peter Pan. We won't be able to access the seating area of the auditorium after November 1. The band will start holding classes on the stage during the morning periods and will be storing equipment out in the seating area.

December 8 and 9, 2018 — Christmas Dessert Theatre in the cafeteria. Plans are to perform the musical A Charlie Brown Christmas.

January 24-27, 2019 — Theatre in the Round on the stage. Because of construction, audience members will have to enter through the doors on the front of the school, just to the right of the shop door and loading dock. Title of the play will be Blood at the Root.

Spring 2019 — Competition in the annual UIL One-Act Play contest.
