Performing Arts

At Bishop Foley Catholic, we are pleased to offer multiple outlets for the performing arts.
 
 
After-School Organizations:
 

Drama Ensemble

Bishop Foley Catholic High School has a highly recognized drama program. Foley is one of the few Catholic schools to put on four plays a year. The Drama Ensemble hosts a Fall Play, One Act Play, Spring Musical, and Student Run Production throughout the school year. The Drama Ensemble moderator and play director is Mrs. Mimi Lewalski. Drama at Bishop Foley Catholic is part of the curriculum as well as an after school club. 
 

Drama I  (elective)

Presents theatre history, introduction to technical theatre, scene development and presentation, and improvisation.
 

Drama II (elective)

Goes further in depth in the same areas and also covers script analysis and directing. 
 

After-School Drama Club

 
The club is an opportunity for any student interested in theatre to have a chance to perform, work backstage or just be part of a club. The Bishop Foley Drama Ensemble presents four productions a year. Even if a student plays sports, there are plenty of opportunities to be part of a production. A varsity letter can be earned in Drama by accumulating enough points through club participation and being a part of any or all of the plays presented each year.
 
The academic year includes four productions. The fall includes a one act production plus another play that alternates between comedy and drama. The spring includes a musical and student run production.
  

Music Department

It’s an exciting time to be a musician at BFC! We currently offer three music performance ensembles for student-musicians to explore and refine their talents: Concert Band (class and club), Concert Choir (class and club), and Music Ministry (club only). Music at Bishop Foley Catholic is offered as part of the curriculum as well as after school clubs. Information about each after-school club can be found below. Interested in joining one of our ensembles? Want more information about our music program? Dr. Daniels would love to hear from you!
 
Extracurricular Activities
Bishop Foley Catholic offers several classes for Performing Arts and provides multiple after-school clubs. All skill levels are eligible to participate in the clubs. The benefit of the music clubs is that the time slots still allow students the ability to participate in sports or other extracurricular activities.

Choir Club

Choir Club is an after-school extracurricular ensemble open to singers of all skill levels and voice types (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone/bass). This group prepares and performs music in conjunction with the Choir class for seasonal concerts (Christmas & Spring) as well as additional performance opportunities within and outside the school community (BFC Cookie Walk, etc.). Genres span sacred and secular (Broadway/pop/rock/jazz), and—even better—the ability to read music is not a requirement to participate in this club—only love of music and a desire to sing! Choir Club rehearses Tues. & Thurs. afternoons from 3-3:30 P.M., which allows students to participate in sports or other extracurricular activities immediately following rehearsals!  We hope you’ll consider lending your vocal talents (even if you think you don’t have any!) to this awesome, fun-filled group! We look forward to welcoming you!!

Choir Club Rehearsals

Tuesdays and Thursdays
3-3:30 p.m. in the Music Room

 

Band Club

 

Band Club is an after-school extracurricular ensemble open to students who play a wind-ensemble instrument (woodwinds, brass, or percussion). Additional instruments (piano/keys, bass, etc.) may be considered at the discretion of the director depending on ensemble needs and sheet music/parts availability. Prior experience (at least 1 year) playing an instrument from one of the above families and the ability to read music are both required in order to participate in this ensemble. This group prepares and performs music in conjunction with the Band class for seasonal concerts (Christmas & Spring) as well as additional performance opportunities within and outside the school community (BFC Open House, Cookie Walk, etc.). Band Club rehearses Wed. & Fri. from 3-3:30 P.M., so students can still participate in sports or other extracurricular activities immediately following rehearsals! Please consider sharing your instrumental musical talents with our BFC family! We look forward to welcoming you!!

*Students who do not meet the criteria to play in Band but wish to express themselves musically at BFC may consider joining one or both of our other music clubs—Choir and Music Ministry.

Music Ministry

 

Do you like contemporary Christian music? Do you enjoy singing or playing Praise & Worship? Then Music Ministry might be just the place for you to lend your musical talents to the BFC community! Music Ministry is an after-school extracurricular ensemble open to singers and instrumentalists (piano/keys, drums, guitar, bass, etc.) who wish to contribute their talents praising God in song at all-school Masses, K-12 liturgies, and other paraliturgical events (Reconciliation, Adoration, etc.). Music is entirely sacred in nature—with particular emphasis placed on contemporary praise and worship styles. Music Ministry meets on Mondays from 3-3:45 P.M. in the Chapel, allowing students to participate in sports or other extracurricular activities immediately following rehearsals. We hope you’ll consider sharing your God-given talents to this dynamic ensemble, and we look forward to seeing you in the Chapel for rehearsal!!
