"I am so excited for our Theatre Season, 2022-2023, here at Payson High School! 'We are all connected', is our Theme for the year, which supports the performances we’re providing the community. Theatre is about showing humanity onstage. We aim to provide quality Theatre that teaches us all how to celebrate life, the individual, the family, and the heart. Thank you for your support!"
