VISTA Productions

The Theater Department of Saint Thomas Academy & Visitation

Theatrical opportunities abound for Saint Thomas Academy and Convent of the Visitation School students. Involvement in VISTA Productions allows you to apply your scholastic knowledge while nurturing your creative talents. We offer a wide variety of theatrical productions ranging from classical works such as Shakespeare to contemporary pieces by national and local playwrights.

Our season also includes instruction in comedy improvisation techniques, dance and choreography, with numerous opportunities for student leadership in the creative and production process. Every year, we strive to design a season that challenges and enlightens our students while helping them discover their talents.

Upcoming Productions:


Yes Virginia, there is going to be a VISTA fall play!  We were able to fully design, stage and film The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and you will be able to view the final product in the comfort of your own home.

Newsies - Spring 2020

Sadly, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, our spring musical, Newsies, was canceled this year. While we hope this cancelation is merely a postponement, we still wanted to take the time to recognize the hard work of our dedicated cast & crew.

"I am a big fine arts guy: I play the violin, I absolutely love theatre, and I really enjoy composing music. After a long school day, I get to go over to Visitation where the theatre is held, enjoy the fun people who are there, and do something I love. This has strengthened my experience at STA greatly. Other students support me at STA and attend the musicals and plays."
