Reynolds High School A Spotlight on the Theatre Arts T he theatre arts is vital to a well-rounded education and the dynamic Theatre Arts curriculum at A.C. Reynolds High School offers students an abundance of creative opportunities, both on and off the stage. As the program enters into its 21st season of providing entertainment to the school and community, it is striking how much growth has occurred since its inception. Theatre arts at A.C. Reynolds began with a single course led by an English teacher, and quickly grew into a full-time position due to high demand from the students. Over the years, the program has gone from hosting mobile performances throughout the community, to staging impressive productions at the school’s own Bryant-McAfee Fine Arts Center. With this state-of-the-art facil- ity, the program is able to offer both acting and tech theatre classes to young creatives. With students and staff from the entire fine arts discipline involved in every aspect of each production, the quality has only improved with time. In the Reynolds community, expectations are high for the continued success of this well-established program! The new director, Mr. Robert Reid Goodson, along with the cast and crew of A.C. Reynolds High invite you to see their spring musical production of Hello, Dolly! Mark your calendars to attend this fabulous story, May 19 – 21 of 2016, in the Bryant-McAfee Fine Arts Center. 16 16
