Welcome to Bayside High School Theatre Arts!
"...go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” - Kurt Vonnegut
It's been an amazing first year for me at Bayside High School! Thanks to everyone who came out to see Sense and Sensibility! I am so glad to be here at Bayside and can't wait for another year of theatre!

"Theatre is like a gym for empathy. It's where we can go to build up the muscles of compassion, to practice listening and understanding and engaging with people that are not just like ourselves. We practice sitting down, paying attention and learning from other people's actions. We practice caring." - Bill English, Artistic Director of San Francisco Playhouse
