BroadwayWorld's High School Center is proud to showcase high school performance programs around the country in our weekly feature of 'High School in the Spotlight'.

This week, we're thrilled to feature the Theatre Program at Mira Mesa High School in San Diego, California!

The Theatre program at Mira Mesa High School offers classes in Beginning and Advanced Theatre, Musical Theatre, Technical Theatre, Playwriting & Directing, and ROP Arts Management.

Theater events at Mira Mesa include a musical theater gala and the annual Drama Festival, a showcase of one-act adaptations of plays and musicals. Students also have the opportunity to join the school's drama club which is actively involved in the gala and drama festival.

The Theatre Program will next present LES MISERABLES starring Albert Nguyen as Jean Valjean, Chelsea Schneider as Fantine, Andres Jaramillo as Javert, Shane Bushouer as Marius and Betsy Podsiadio as Cosette. Performances will take place March 15 thru 23, 2013. For more information, click here.

The school also offers other performing arts activities including Band/Marching Band, Orchestra, Choir/Madrigals, Color Guard and a Dance/Drill Team. The school's marching band had the honor of participating in the Sydney Olympics Opening Ceremonies in 2000.
