Philosophy: Theatre develops students’ fundamental skills in self-expression, communication, creative problem-solving, and critical thinking. Creative dramatics begin in the Lower School where students form fundamental foundations through activities and guided play. Older students grow in their sense of self and character by connecting to multiple perspectives and the larger world around them. Students learn to understand the practical aspects of theatre production through hands-on experiences within the classroom as well as through co-curricular productions throughout the school year. Productions and classrooms are student-centered in order to empower students both onstage and off to create, problem-solve, and grow as artists.
