Performing Arts Program

Performing Arts – Middle Grades

Our theater program in the middle and upper grades has two dimensions: drama pushes into the classroom providing a unique and dynamic dimension to the liberal arts curriculum while our dedicated drama classes develop improvisation, dramaturgy and scene study. The drama program naturally feeds into multiple performance opportunities throughout the year including cabarets, foreign language plays, musicals and straight plays some written by both students and faculty.

Middle school musicians learn their instruments in small groups, culminating in two large ensembles in the 8th Grade: the symphonic band/orchestra and the guitar ensemble. Upper School music meets in a workshop model and is open to all types of instrument including piano and drums. Ensembles are student driven and repertoire is student selected. Upper and Middle School ensembles play regularly in and outside of school including frequent JAMS in the cafeteria.
