Theater Performance and Technical Theater Production
Lee High School houses a comprehensive theater department. We are divided into two programs, Theater Performance and Technical Theater Production. Theater Performance students focus on acting and performing, and Technical Theater students focus on set design and construction, costume design, lighting, sound, and all the details that go into mounting a stage show. Theater students produce several theatrical works a year, with focus on a one-act play, spring musical, a monologue showcase, and a main stage production. They are also encouraged to work with the many groups that use the facilities during the year. This allows them to work with professionals and builds their resumes as they prepare for college.
Leslie Gates is the Performance Magnet Director. She comes to us from Theatre Huntsville where she was president for many years. She is a graduate of Mercer University with a degree in Theatre. She Hates bubble gum and is highly superstitious when it comes to the theatre. So don't name "The Scottish Play" around her.
