Mrs. Cristina H. Rivas

Welcome to my Talented Theatre class! This is my 9th year teaching in St. Charles Parish and I am looking forward to working with 9th-12th grade Talented Theatre students in their journey through learning to become a more engaged young artist. 

I have my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Acting & Musical Theatre from The University of the Arts, Philadelphia. I am a trained Stage Combat Instructor with the SAFD and I was once upon a time a Talented Theatre student myself. Theatre training is not only for my aspiring actors, but for my future public speakers, new anchors, presidents and lawyers. Theatre is about engaging the heart of an audience, how to express yourself, and be our most confident selves. I hope after students leave my classroom, they become lifelong learners & artists. 

This year our Fall Play is Ken Ludwig's The Three Musketeers and our big Spring Musical is Mamma Mia! with music by ABBA. For more information about the season lineup, check out the Drama/Theatre Tab under Extracurriculars.

Please sign up for your grade level Google Classroom to receive assignments and updates regularly. I look forward to being a part of your young artist's journery to becoming a more confident performer.
