This document presents a justification, proposal, and implementation plan for a comprehensive theatre arts program at Badger High School, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin that would offer a full schedule of amateur and professional arts programs involving the students and the community. The brief Justification section notes that every elementary and secondary school should offer a balanced, sequential, and high quality program of instruction in arts disciplines. The Proposal section of the paper introduces the goals of the program: (1) to encourage involvement in the performing arts from the students and the community; (2) to involve students in all aspects of theatre production; (3) to maximize the use of the theatre facility; and (4) to make Badger High School a leader in performing arts production. The brief Implementation section of the paper outlines the four stages of the program. The Stage One Implementation section of the paper presents detailed job descriptions for the Theatre Manager and students staff jobs (including production staff and technical staff positions) as well as a funding proposal. The paper concludes with numerous units of study and time allocation charts for courses in Theatre Literature, Theatre Production (I and II), Theatre Tech (I, II, and III), Acting for the Musical, Dramatic Acting, and Theatre Practicum.
