Theatre

Each year, the theatre department presents two plays; one in the fall and another in the spring, with upper school students performing on stage and working behind the scenes. Middle and upper school students also have the opportunity to take drama classes as a part of our elective course offerings and each grade in the lower school produces and performs an original play each year.
