Archbishop Bergan offers the opportunity for high school students (grades 9-12) to participate in both One-Act plays and full length Musical / Play productions. One-Act is a Fall activity with competitions taking place for Conference, District and State in late November and early December. This school year, Bergan will be competing with a one-act play by Tim Kelly called, “The Comedian.”
Play productions are intended to provide an educational experience for high school students. They are intended to help encourage self-expression and creativity as well as increase cultural awareness and understanding of human behavior through a greater appreciation of dramatic literature while helping to develop self-discipline, self-esteem, confidence and communication skills.
Full length musicals and plays are a Spring activity. These typically allow for larger casts in a non-competitive setting to create a production for the school and Fremont community most generally in late March or April of each year.
