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.

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

This is the play that has as its genesis in the events of the famous Scopes trial. One of the most outstanding dramas of our time. "The portrait it draws of an explosive episode in American culture, vigorously written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, remains as fresh as it ever was. One of the most stirring plays in recent years retains its folk flavor and spiritual awareness in an Arena Stage production. Bursting with vitality…Literature of the stage!" —NY Times.
