Anacapa students Rufus O’Dea and Lottie Johnston as Prince Erik and Ariel meet on the “beach” at opening night of “Disney’s The Little Mermaid.”

Every year students have two opportunities to be involved in the performing arts. For the Fall Semester, students prepare for a “Grassroots” production, where each year students select a topic (e.g. Broadway) and prepare songs, dances and skits centered around that topic. For the Spring Semester students produce a full length play. In preparation for both of these productions, students gain skills in improvisation, pantomime, character development, choral sight reading, and costume and set design.
