Archbishop Ryan High School is proud to have the premier High School Theater Arts program in the Philadelphia area, with students performing in two major musical productions a year on the main stage in our Auditorium. This program works in conjunction with our musical academic program, and is designed for students who are interested in singing, dancing, and acting. Students on our Stage Crew also obtain valuable technology skills in set design, production lighting and sound. Archbishop Ryan performances have been compared to Broadway productions thanks to the talents of our students and staff!
In addition, the Archbishop Ryan High School Auditorium is used for assemblies and Masses for students, and we have served the community by hosting conferences on opioid awareness, depression/anxiety, and financial aid for college students and families.
Archbishop Ryan High School, including the Auditorium, was constructed in 1966 and the seating and flooring are original. Upgrades are needed for safety of students, families and community guests. The Auditorium Improvements require general seating and handicap accessibility, HVAC, and flooring.
