TAISM Drama and Musical Productions


Lights…Camera…Action! Students in grades 6-12 hav the opportunity to take drama during the school day, and the after school productions are a very special extension of their learning process. In addition to an annual elementary production, the Bosch Center is home stage to the work of middle school and high school plays and musicals.

We are proud to present the 2018-2019 TAISM Drama Season:

High School Musical

Bye Bye Birdie

Middle School Play

The Enchanted Bookshop

Elementary School Musical 

Aristocats, Kids

High School Play

The Gift


Students use acting to explore, express, and communicate ideas, emotions, and relationships.  They develop an awareness of timing, body language and its meanings.  In an after school setting, drama skills are improvised and rehearsed.  Students study performing skills, both vocal and physical, and the technical skills of designing and implementing within the areas of lighting, sound, costume, stage make-up, props and set design.

Through the creation of live theater, students grow in their ability to comprehend the world and communicate with others. The overall goal of the drama program at TAISM is to foster a positive self-image in students and to help them use their body, voice and mind as tools to creatively communicate ideas. As a story unfolds, actors and tech crew experience the lessons and rewards of an ensemble-based, performance-based endeavor.
