It should be a unique and special honor to receive a Letter in Theater. To earn a Letter in Theater, students must go above and beyond what is regularly expected from a La Salle Theater student. A Letter represents excellence, dedication, service and achievement within La Salle’s Theatre Department.
The first year students meet the above criteria, they will earn a letter and a pin.
Any subsequent years the student meets the criteria for lettering he/she will receive a bar to be placed on the previously earned letter.
Letters will be awarded at the end of the year Drama Awards Night.
In order to letter in Theater a student must participate in at least one of the annual all school productions AND the student must acquire 30 points, based on the points chart below.
Points are earned based on participation for rehearsals and performances. Helping with additional committees or teams is considered part of the La Salle Theater experience and students are expected to help when asked.
You are encouraged to earn points in at least two areas. To earn points for a secondary position, the student must spend at least 20 hours of time, giving full attention to that secondary position, as well as have the points approved by the director.
