• Richmond High Schools's Creative and Performing Arts Academy is home of the Theater class. When people think about theater, they hesitate to join because the students think they have to participate. That is an incorrect assumption because there are many different aspects in theater that does not involve acting. Theater production is a great class to learn about lighting and sound. The skills you learn can benefit you in the future. Theate production does not only work on acting performances, they are heavily involved in any activity that requires the Little Theater.
