Drama begins in the Lower School where students learn the fundamental elements of drama through fables, folklore, myths, legends, and the stories of Shakespeare’s plays.  Each grade level performs a play or musical for students and parents.  Middle School drama offers both trimester and year-long courses in drama, production, and improv. The Upper School drama program provides students with an intensive study of the acting and production process through both classwork and after school plays.
