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.

Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards, Book by Peter Stone
American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence... if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 is a funny and compelling musical that follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to sign the Declaration of Independence.
