The Theatre Department features a sequential curriculum that allows students to investigate the social and historical context in which they live, form aesthetic judgments, and develop the discipline of the artist. The ultimate goal is to promote appreciation of the art, as well as a more sensitive and reflective understanding of the human condition.
Patriot Theatre Company’s mission is to activate passion, inspire excellence, and cultivate mindful citizens in an inclusive community of well-rounded theatre artists engaging in diverse stories.

OLIVÉRio: A Brazilian Twist is a joyful retelling of Oliver Twist set in modern-day Rio de Janeiro that tackles issues of poverty, inequity and injustice while exploring Brazil’s rich music and culture. Esperanca Oliverio, nicknamed Oli, is a homeless orphan girl who asks Iemanja, the goddess of the sea, for a “little bit more” in her life. Con man Falcão and his artful young thief Zé Esquiva invite Oli to live with them in the favela, hoping they can use her sweet nature as a perfect distraction to steal from Rosa Maria, the rich widow who lives in a penthouse in Copacabana. In the favela, Oli meets Nancí, a young woman who begins to teach Oli how to read. But when Nancí’s jealous police officer boyfriend, Sykes, gets involved, everyone’s life is in peril and everyone has to choose between doing what is easy and what is right. This one-act musical will be jointly produced by the Stevenson Foundation and the Patriot Theatre Company and will be directed by Joey Fitzpatrick.
