Chorus & Theater

The Performing Arts program has always played a vital role in the development of Goodpasture students, but it has seen a recent surge of growth and success in every medium of the genre. Students of all ages are encouraged to participate in performing arts programs that each uniquely encourage confidence, artistic expression, and leadership skills. From chorus to the theater, the Performing Arts program is one of the most active and visible programs on campus.

  • Chorus

    Chorus is a music education class in which students are given the opportunity to sing a wide variety of music ranging from classical to today's popular hits. Middle school students may participate in the seventh and eighth-grade choruses while students in grades nine through twelve may join the high school chorus or audition for the select chorus. Each chorus will perform throughout the school year at churches, nursing homes, and various school functions. The high school and select choruses attend choral festivals at Lipscomb University as well as Harding University. Past chorus groups have received Excellent in Performance and Superior in Sight-Reading at the High School Adjudication Festival in Murfreesboro.

  • Elementary School Music

    Students in preschool through fifth grade are immersed with music from a broad spectrum of time periods and genres. While learning to express themselves through music, students utilize voice, instruments, and movement. Each child is educated in the fundamentals of music while gaining performance knowledge, skills, and confidence. These hands-on, active experiences help students to develop a love of music. Throughout the school year, the music department presents a number of programs allowing students at every grade level the opportunity to perform for family and friends. Programs include solo and group performances, speaking, and acting parts.

  • Theater

    The theater program at Goodpasture allows students to learn about and be a part of everything that goes into stage productions through Theater I, Theater II, Theater III, and Technical Theater.

    Theater I is an introductory theater class that covers the history of theater, improvisation, and the GOTE acting method as well as monologue and duet performances. Theater II introduces students to many different acting techniques and offers unique opportunities to show off those skills. Past Theater II projects have included murder mystery shows, shorts festivals, and lip dub videos. Technical Theater is an active, hands-on class that is only open to juniors and seniors. The students in the Technical Theater course gain an understanding of the elements of design and how they are used in sets, lights, costume, and makeup. In addition to in-class design projects, these students spend much of their class time in the auditorium designing, building, and painting sets for our school productions. The various theater courses available ensure that high school students have a variety of options available to fulfill the necessary fine arts credit. Our annual theater productions include a fall play with auditions open for high school students and a spring musical with auditions open to all ages.
