Home Page - Welcome to Chiles Theatre!

Chiles Department of Theatre Arts is having a fabulous new year! Classes in acting, technical theatre, and costume are continuing to show improvement in every area. The Fall Play, FOOLS, was a terrific success; we had many nice comments about the terrific acting, wonderful set and beautiful costumes.  Congratulations to the entire cast and crew who made it happen! Our spring musical is BIG FISH!  Click on the right for information.
