The theatre program at Pope John Paul II High School offers a variety of dynamic theatre courses. Students learn every aspect of production, including set, sound, lighting, costume, and performance. Students explore and are challenged to trust their natural instinct while assessing with a realistic and thoughtful approach to theatre. When students develop techniques in theatre, lessons become applicable to a successful service-filled life.

Annually, the theatre program has two main stage productions, including a fall drama and a spring musical. Many other performance opportunities are produced from theatre classes and are shared outside the JPII community.
