The theatre program at Saint James School is designed to be a hands on, practical experience. Classes include Theatre Fundamentals, Theatre Arts I and II, Technical Theatre I and II, and Theatre Production.

Students in grades 6-12 are invited to audition for our shows and have many opportunities for artistic expression and growth as a young person. We compete at theatre competitions throughout the state and are recognized as one of the premier programs in Alabama. Our modern theatre facility includes a true proscenium theatre and a spacious rehearsal space.

Many students in theatre at Saint James have graduated and continued their love for theatre with an easy transition into their chosen fields. Many Saint James Theatre alumnni have gone on to work as actors, directors, writers, and technicians for theme parks, regional, Hollywood, Las Vegas, London, and Broadway theaters.
