Located nearby Cedar City, Utah – the home of the Tony Award winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, Diamond Ranch Academy’s performing arts students are invited to take part in the annual student Shakespeare competition.
The performing arts at Diamond Ranch have been growing for a number of years and has really taken on a life of its own since the boarding school has expanded to its new campus near Sand Hollow State Park in Southern Utah.
The new campus has a performing arts theater custom built for the DRA students interested in theater, and performing on stage.
Additionally, the private boarding school has added a number of professional actors and teachers to their staff to give the students a real life experience in participating in a professional theater – the Rattlin’ D Playhouse.
This isn’t just a few people interested in drama teaching students, its full-blown performing arts department beyond what most public schools are able to develop. The fact that it is associated with the professional theater – the Rattlin’ D Playhouse, students get to see and experience first hand the process of putting on a production from the selection of a script to the end product of public attended productions.
Students at DRA learn about set production, acting, singing, performing, lights, sound, and just about every other piece of a professional theater production. The reviews of the Diamond Ranch Academy students in their parts have been outstanding, patrons of each show being astounded at the abilities of the young actors.
