Every Bethany student has the opportunity to audition for an acting role or to join a production crew. The theatre department produces several performances each year, giving many students a chance to perform on stage or work in the various technical aspects of theater, including set building, scene painting, lighting, sound, costumes, make-up, box office, publicity, running crews, and stage managing.
