Everyone is an artist. Whether on stage, behind the camera, in a courtroom, or running your own business, there is an art in what you do and drama education can help cultivate and empower your passions. We believe in creating spaces that celebrate our uniqueness, that diversity and inclusion makes us stronger, and in the nurturing of creative, interdependent well-rounded humans.
The theatre program of Cedar Creek High School is committed to mounting high-quality productions that provide a rich educational and theatrical experience for its participants and audiences. We will continually strive to present work of artistic and thematic significance to our community, in the hopes that students, teachers, and spectators alike will be moved by our work to feel deeply and think deeply.
Cedar Creek Theater serves as a dynamic and diverse educational environment where students can develop a life-long relationship and love for the arts. Over a third of the student body at Cedar Creek High School participates in our fine & performing arts programs including curricular offerings in theater, instrumental music, choral music, dance, media and broadcasting, and the fine arts.
Our theatrical season includes an all-school comedy/drama in the fall, Theatre II and Honors Theatre III class productions, an all-school musical in the late winter, and various solo and small ensemble performances throughout the community. Students can also participate in Team Theatre, our forensics team, and Shakesperience, the annual Shakespeare festival at Rider University. Our theatre courses currently have dual credit agreements with Atlantic-Cape Community College and Stockton University.
Cedar Creek Theater is a proud participant in the Montclair University Theater Night Awards, Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Awards, and the Atlantic County Teen Arts Festival.
