A Kearney High School, our students win state and national awards in theater and play production. The high school performs one play and one musical each year. Some of the past plays and musicals include Footloose, Into the Woods, I Hate Shakespeare, The Great Gatsby, Almost Maine, Matilda, and The Addams Family.
The students perform in the 1,000 seat Concert Hall & Theatre, also called the CHaT.
The KHS Thespian Troupe is an honor society that recognizes and rewards excellence among the participants in the theatre arts program, and induction as a Thespian is the first of many honors that may be given to active students. The Kearney High School Thespian Troupe #1811 is in association with the International Thespian Society (ITS). As Thespians, students may attend state and national events, including the International Thespian Festival, with workshops, college and scholarship auditions, as well as opportunities to showcase and receive assessment on tech and performance skills.
