I'd speak to the school and see if he can miss it.

I wouldn't make him take part if he didn't want to.

I remember being in them at school. The rehearsals etc were a whole class activity so i cant imagine they would want him just sitting up the back alone while everyone else participates iykwim. I also dont think its their responsibility to provide another teacher to supervise one student in a classroom just because he doesnt seem interested..its like any lesson, even if you arnt interested in maths you still need to participate. I dont know how schools see it thats just my POV

I would assume there would be backstage roles available for students not interested in performing. That's what my high school did. It was mandatory to participate, but you didn't have to be on stage.

I'd explain your situation and see if there's some kind of compromise, if he doesn't want to participate in the performance perhaps they can give him another task to do that still means he's involved somehow if they are practicing during class time.

I'd totally try and opt out if I were in your position. Much sympathy for your son, I remember how much I hated that sort of thing in school.

I dunno, I think it's probably important that children learn that sometimes they need to take part in things that they aren't really into. But at the same time, if he was really upset about having to get up on stage, I'd be discussing other areas he could help out with the production without having to be up on stage. As for the night rehearsals, I would also discuss that with the teacher, explan your situation and how difficult it is to make it to those sessions, and see if there's a way around it.

How old is he?
It is part of his education. Stuff like this teaches the kids confidence, it teaches them to speak in front of others and work with other kids.
if its not able to be done (at night, other children etc) ... then explain to the school and see what you can do.
Most of those activities (public speaking etc) are also done at assemblies, class presentations etc as well.
It is hard
