The lights, the sound, the audience, the actors. Our W.P. Wagner Theatre Department provides every opportunity to students to be a part of this vibrant element of our school’s Fine Arts community. Drama courses, full-length productions, one act plays, an award-winning improv team, technical theatre, Cappies, and a fully-equipped theatre are all part of the experience. Students will learn the key elements of character development, writing for the theatre, movement, improvisation, and how to become a stronger storyteller. So much of life is communication - drama offers students a way to focus, grow and gain valuable skills that will last a lifetime.
Improvisational Theatre 15, 25 and 35 are for students looking to expand their improvisation skills through workshop and performance. Students perform monthly at the Northern Alberta Improv League, collaboratively with fellow high school students across the city and at Home Showcases hosted in our very own theatre! Enrollment in Improvisational Theatre is by audition in September.
W.P. WAGNER IMPROV TEAM
Improv theatre presents another opportunity for students at W.P. Wagner to be involved in the Theatre Company. Members of the Improv Team train throughout the year on their storytelling techniques in order to create original, challenging, often hilarious pieces of theatre - all made up on the spot. W.P. Wagner has long been involved in the local Improv tournaments that happen around the City of Edmonton.
