The Theatre Department has been in existence for a number of years at Sylacauga High School. In the 1980s into the 90s, the theatre was thriving under the direction of Mrs. Suzy Hammonds. Following after her was Ms. Deetsie Webb who partnered with Mrs. Janie Giddens, and then Mr. Chad Littleton. The SHS Aggie Theatre began under the new direction of Ms. Lauren Taunton in August of 2016. In the 2016-17 school year, the theatre classes produced a version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas, which was taken and performed at the elementary schools. In the same year, they presented the inaugural Thespian Fest, which was comprised of a series of short plays and scenes. In the 2017-18 school year, the Theatre II class produced a play entitled Almost, Maine, followed by a Theatre I Christmas-themed short play festival. The following spring of the same year, students in the Theatre I classes presented the second annual Thespian Fest, which took place in April, and the Musical Theatre class produced Seussical JR., which took place in May. The Theatre Department is thrilled with its growth over the last several years and looks forward to producing more quality educational productions.
