Comprised of several talented student performers, the MTE provides training in musical theatreOs three core areas - voice, acting, an dance. MTE studnts will be the 'go-to ambassadorsO'for the performing arts at DHS, performing mini themed revues at school and community events. In addition to their performance at the Decatur Book Festival, the MTE will prepare at least two major performances including a full-length musical.
