Theater classes allow students to explore their dramatic side. Classes start with a small project-students create puppets and adapt familiar children’s stories to plays to present to the lower school students. As the school year progresses, so do the students’ assignments-puppets and puppet stages become full-sized costumes and sets, story adaptations become original scripts. In the spring, students mount a full-scale production for the entire school, their friends and families.

Younger students also get an opportunity to shine on stage. Every Christmas, the lower school students stage an Operetta in honor of the holiday season.
