International School for the Arts
Irmo Theater Department is competing in the South Carolina Speech and Theater festival for the 2nd year in a row this year. We are co-hosting the competition with Dutch Fork High School and will be hosting it in our brand new theater next year. We are also doing 2 improv shows with faculty to raise money for worthy causes during the year. The honors students are having monthly facetime/skype chats with professionals in the theater community from around the country. Professionals include an Emmy award winning playwright/screenwriter from Hollywood, an Emmy award winning editor of television programs, an agent, a theater manager, a former Blue Man Group actor, an actor that has appeared in everything from a Spider-man movie to nickelodeon television show to a Showtime series drama. Each Honors senior student will also pick, direct, and present a one act show. We are also planning our own show in the middle of the year and working on the district musical this year, Aida.
