Cypress Lake High School Center for the Arts

The Center for the Arts provides an exciting opportunity for artistically talented high school students of Lee County. Once selected, students will become part of an artistic environment designed to develop their talents to the highest possible level while fostering an appreciation and love of the arts which will serve them well in the pursuit of the next step in their educational training and chosen careers.

Admission to the Center for the Arts program is by audition only.  In addition to the Center for the Arts application, a zone school application must also be completed according to the published timeline if changing schools or if the student is new to the School District of Lee County.  Should a student be accepted into the arts program following the audition, that student will be released from the school assigned by Student Assignment in order to attend the Center for the Arts.  All students enrolling in the Center for the Arts must complete four semesters in the program to be considered for a waiver should they choose to leave the arts program. (School District of Lee County Administrative Regulation 1.63)

Theatre Arts

The Theatre Program at Cypress Lake High School is a rigorous, comprehensive program of study. Students may pursue one of three tracks of study: Theatre Performance, Technical Theatre, or Musical Theatre. Each track of study is designed to prepare students for a future in the Theatre Arts. In addition to a comprehensive course load, students accepted into the program are required to complete quarterly Lab Hours outside of the classroom in order to put the skills they learn in the classroom into practice. By the time students complete their track of study, they will have earned anywhere from 8 to 13 credits in Theatre Arts and will be equipped with a portfolio of audition material and technical achievements to help  advance them to the post-secondary level of Theatre education.

Audition Requirements

Applicants are expected to arrive at the beginning of the audition time block to sign in and complete paperwork.  All students will be taken into the audition room as a group. Parents/Guardians will be asked to accompany their child to the first 10 minutes of the audition and receive important program information.  Parents will then be escorted back to the waiting area. Parents are not permitted to watch auditions. Applicants will then complete their audition requirements according to their selected track of study.
