WELCOME TO MILTON THEATRE
Milton Theatre Company is a dynamic, award-winning, public high school theatre company that produces several shows throughout the year.
Each season the company produces two or three One Act productions, a Musical production, a Cirque production, four Improv shows, and four or five Senior Directed One Acts.
The Directors are committed to excellence in the theatre arts, and work tirelessly to educate their students while producing the highest quality theatrical productions.
Advanced Drama is a performance/participation class in which each student will participate in theatre both as a performer and technician. In the class, students will rehearse and tech a show. If, as opposed to inactively involved in the cast of a show, the student will be working on a technical element of some kind. Some students in the class will serve as stage managers or full-time technicians and will be required to fulfill the duties of their assignments
Auditions for the Advanced Drama classes are held in the spring. Students will be asked to prepare a monologue for the audition.

Students will work as a cohesive team to develop, produce and present a Cirque performance. As a production class, each student will contribute to the creation of storyline, act development, character development, specific and general tasks attributed to production as well as take on various leadership roles and technical duties. In addition, students are expected to participate fully in extensive physical conditioning, training on aerial and ground apparatus, acting, clowning, miming, juggling, dance, creative movement, along with other aspects associated with circus arts. Performance in the Cirque production is expected.
Cirque Student Planning Team (2022-23):

A Musical is produced in the spring and auditions are open to the entire student body of Milton High School. Once cast, the students will rehearse the show after school. There will be several performances in March.

The Milton Improv Troup is a student run group which performs several times per year in the Black Box Theatre. Improv is a very popular event at MHS as the shows are always sold out. This group of talented students uses skills acquired in theatre such as acting, singing, creating comical unscripted scenes using props, lines and suggestions from the audience.
The Improv Troupe holds auditions twice per year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Improv is a student run organization. For further information, contact the IMPROV troupe leaders, Sarah Charles Lewis & Chris Mayer.
