In addition to choirs, the vocal music department helps to produce an annual musical each spring. There are currently six choirs: Freshman Choir, Concert Choir, Royaltones (co-ed a capella), Royal Harmony (co-ed competitive show choir), Royal Adelines (female a capella), and the Bearitones (male a capella).

The Dan Calabrese Center for the Performing Arts[edit]

North Royalton High School's performing arts center, The Dan Calabrese Center for the Performing Arts (known as "The PAC"), was built in the mid-1980s and has hosted a number of shows and events since. It has played host to the musicals such as Guys and Dolls, Annie, The Pajama Game, Big Fish, The Music Man, Grease, How to Succeed in Business..., Footloose, Little Shop of Horrors, and West Side Story.

The PAC has also been the home of many events such as the Royalton Rock-Off, which was a benefit concert showcasing a number of student-formed rock bands. Additionally, the annual talent featured such acts as The Villagers, a singing group founded in 1996 that featured a revolving cast of new performers in successive years through 2010.
