CHS Theatre Company
The CHS Theatre Company, directed by Trey Clarkson, holds open auditions and produces multiple productions throughout the year for CHS students. Variations in styles of comedies and tragedies, musicals and straight plays, adaptations and classics, and full length and one-acts are on display each year to immerse the students in a variety of performances. All technical aspects of the production, from lights and sound to stage management and make-up, are student-run with adult supervision and training. Former musical productions have ranged from Disney’s “Little Mermaid Jr” to “Godspell” to "Seussical the Musical" while classic productions have staged shows like "Antigone", "Leaving Iowa", and "The Pearl"
Each year, the CHS Theatre Company takes their fall play on the road when they attend the Virginia Theatre Association’s High School Theater Festival. The Company is committed to excellence in every aspect of their performance and their motto is “we don’t do high school theatre; we do theatre in high school.”
Starting in 2017 with “Proof”, the new Generations Theater Company began a spring production featuring seniors, alumni and local professional actors.
