The goal of the Drama Department is to expose our students to the active practice of the art of theater; therefore, empathy, collaboration, discipline, playfulness, and creativity are central values.
Our 5th through 12th grade sequence will prepare students to create as actors, playwrights, directors, and designers and to knowledgeably critique theatrical texts and performances. Our mission is to present theater and performance as an academic area of the school's curriculum; to construct a discourse that does not separate acts of knowing from doing, theory from practice, or life from art; to value the qualities of gratitude, forgiveness, inclusion, optimism, courage, and love; and to strive to help our students to see meaning and to find satisfaction in their lives and in the lives around them.
