• Fort Bend ISD has a competitive and well-regarded Theatre program with campus productions appearing at the state UIL One Act Play contest multiple times over the past few decades including three consecutive 2nd place finishes in the 6A contest by the current Bush High School production team. Students also participate annually in UIL Theatrical Design contest, Renaissance Festival Play Days, International Thespians contests and Middle School One Act Play.  Theatre classes allow students to develop internal and external personal resources, create through artistic collaboration, accept constructive criticism, relate theatre to its social context, and form aesthetic judgments. Through multi-sensory experiences, students develop skills that lead both to creative expression, problem-solving skills, and an appreciation for the theatre as an art form.
