Classical Arts Academy


The Classical Arts Academy seeks to engage Catholic homeschool students in the creative acts born in us through the image of God, the Ultimate Creator, and to lead them to a deeper wisdom of the True, Good, and Beautiful by shaping their moral imaginations through visual and performed storytelling.

Now Hiring Head Theatre Director!

Creative Vision for CAA Theatre Troupe:

Productions should embody the Truths of the Traditional Catholic Faith, while leading both theatre students and audiences to a deeper love and understanding of this Truth. The Catholic themes do not need to be explicit in the script, but rather should be creatively woven into the story in such a way as to “breathe” the Life of Truth into the moral imagination of all those who participate in or attend the production. Classic plays, such as Sophocles and Shakespeare, scripts based on classic literary works, and fairy tales all make wonderful candidates for production, although modern works that uphold these ideals will also be considered. Ideally, productions will be elaborately artistic and will alternate between serious dramas and fanciful comedies.


Head Theatre Director will be in charge of developing and implementing the theatre program for Queen of Angels Classical Arts Academy. He/she will produce and direct two main stage productions per year (April & December), plus coordinate performances for Shakespeare Fest (June) and Back From the Dead Walk (October).





Regularly Tuesday evenings and Thursday afternoons/evenings. Monday through Saturday evenings during production week. Time off in between productions.
