Home Page - Welcome to Chiles Theatre!

Due to the Corona Virus, school is closed through the end of the semester. I am using FOCUS for access to on-line classes (directions for use on the main Chiles Web Page). Also, email is the best way to communicted with me (obryans@leonschools.net)  As of this time all afterschool programs and activities are cancelled through the end of this school year. Please keep checking the Chiles Website for updates and information.

We are currently choosing courses for next year.  Give your child the gift of a theatre education; it promotes the most sought-after skills of future employers, including confidence, speaking, collaborating, and problem solving. We have a class in theatre for all students from acting to costume to scenery, beginning to AP levels - join us today! 


Thank you for visiting my website.  I have been a theatre educator for 27 years, the past 19 of which have been as Chiles High School.  I am also the director, designer, and technical director of most Chiles theatrical productions, and the sponsor of the Chiles Thespians and Stage Crew.
