Decatur Central High School Theatre is dedicated to a tradition of excellent art and to serving the students of DCHS with the opportunity to grow and learn as theatre makers, as students, and as citizens of the world.  We strive to make a safe space for our students to take risks and to show their talent among a group of peers and educators who will encourage their creativity and their development.
