Performing Arts has been an integral part of the Fort Collins High School landscape for more than 100 years, and while we proudly carry that tradition and history in our hearts, we also move forward each season with the bright spirit of pioneering. 

FCHS is proud to perform the 723 seat McNeal Theater with its professional fly-system and rich history. In the classroom, FCHS houses six choirs, four bands, four orchestras, a chamber music program, AP Music Theory, Beginning and Advanced Piano, Beginning and Advanced Guitar, History of Rock and Roll, Unified Music, and a host of other performing arts courses, giving students in the music program diverse opportunities, and sending them on to study at the nation's most coveted performing arts institutions. FCHS produces three full-length shows each year, including two musicals. Join us this season and become a member of our century old Lambkin family.
