The Fine Arts department at USJ is known for its show stopping productions given by our Middle and Upper School students. Several Upper School musicals have been nominated for the Orpheum’s High School Musical Theatre Awards, which is part of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards program including 30 programs from across the United States. Aside from performance opportunities, students are also able to take on the responsibilities of set design, choreography, and other activities required for a production. Upper School students are also heavily involved in assisting our Middle School students with their productions. Whether its choreography or backstage supervision, Upper School students gain knowledge of the working parts of a musical aside from performance. Through this, Middle School students are given the opportunity to connect with and learn from those older than them. When involved in a USJ musical, each student experiences firsthand the process of putting on a show from beginning to end.
We are excited to announce our season for the 2021-22 school year. We will have a total of four musical theatre productions under the direction of Dr. Tammy Grant, with two middle school musicals and two upper school musicals. Save the dates because you are not going to want to miss these amazing shows!
