The Regis Community Theatre, created and managed by Regis High School teacher Judine Brey, offers several shows every year, each with a focus on religious themes. While the Regis Community Theatre will be open to anyone in the Eau Claire community, it focuses on the families, faculty, staff, and alumni at Regis Catholic Schools.
“The Regis Community Theatre will provide more theatrical opportunities for students of all ages,” Brey said. “The students at our three elementary schools will have an earlier opportunity to participate in theatrical productions in a setting they are comfortable with, giving them a more complete background when they enter the Regis Middle and High School drama program.”
There is no charge to participate in the Regis Community Theatre and Brey welcomes all participants, no matter the level of experience. In addition to launching the Regis Community Theatre, Brey has also taken on a new role as Regis’ first Fine Arts Director, giving our schools an even greater emphasis on the importance of the arts.
“Because I gained so many things from the fine arts, I am always looking for a way to give back to those activities,” Brey said. “I am very excited to begin this new venture!”
During the school year, the Regis Community Theatre produces two seasonal shows, a Christmas show in December and a Lent/Easter show in March/April.
“These productions will allow us, as a faith-based community, to deliver spiritual messages through our performances – something that is done far too little in theatrical circles,” Brey said.
