Bringing drama to life.
My name is Rachel Way an I have been working in the theatre world for over 14 years from acting to being a creative director to being a production writer. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre from Ouachita Baptist University and have worked at Disney and appeared in numerous television and radio commercials.
Drama is a great way for our students to improve their public speaking skills, increase their efficacy in the English language, improve their confidence, and learn new skills. At TIS, middle and high school students have so many opportunities to perform on stage but also help backstage with camera, lighting, stage design as well with the technical arts such as costuming and make-up.
We believe students can achieve so much more than they even realize and we hold our actors to extremely high standards. Our goal each year is to provide excellent productions for our local and ex-pat communities. We usually have two shows every year, ranging from musicals, comedies, Shakespeare, to other dramatic works. Our fall production is in December and our spring production is in March!
