In this story, Christopher Boone, a young autistic teen, discovers a dead dog on his neighbor’s lawn that he suspects was murdered. Despite others’ warnings, he persists in solving this curious incident. Embark with Christopher on his journey of self-discovery as he uncovers shocking truths about reality, family, and betrayal, all while navigating his way through life as a teenage boy in present-day England.

ACHS Theatre Arts

ACHS Theatre Arts is a growing, passionate group of students in Drama 1, 2, and Advanced Drama and participating in after-school productions. We are proud to present two full-length shows every year as well as "Winter One-Acts" in January. Theatre is unique in that it is the most authentic project-based learning possible. Students collaborate to bring a show to life and then present it to friends, peers, and community members.

We encourage all ACHS students to join the Theater Arts department by taking Drama 1 or 2, or auditioning for Advanced Drama, or joining the American Canyon Drama Club. There are many opportunities to participate in theatre, either onstage or behind the scenes. Experience is not required! All are welcome to experience the spirit, dedication, and talent of American Canyon High School's theatre family.

Our goal this year is to stretch beyond ourselves in all we do. Growth in acting skills, technical aspects, and parent support is our next steps. We hope you will join us on our learning journey as we delve into classics, contemporary, and playwriting skills. You may be surprised to discover that you actually enjoy it!
