Yale Musical Theatre and Fine Arts:

Yale Secondary Musical Theatre has a longstanding tradition with many varied and storied performances. The Yale Secondary School Musical Theatre Group was formed in September, 1990. It produces an annual full-scale musical held at the Abbotsford Arts Centre in Abbotsford, B.C. The Musical Theatre course was introduced to Yale Secondary School as a locally-developed course in 1993. It is now recognized as fully accredited Board Approved Course in Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. The class enrolls between 50 and 80 students. Musical Theatre places its emphasis on experiential learning. The course is intended to provide students with an understanding of the elements of Musical Theatre, examining both performance and technical aspects of the Musical Theatre genre within the framework of a Musical Theatre Production Company.
