There are multiple opportunities to participate in drama in the Lower School in all of our classes from kindergarten through fifth grade.
All of the plays and musicals are the result of the talent and effort of our classroom teachers and Lower School music faculty. The focus of our Lower School drama program is on drama as a learning experience. Our goal is to provide all of our students with opportunities to develop their self confidence and creativity.
In the Middle School, seventh and eigth graders have an opportunity to elect drama during their project time periods.
At the end of the trimester, students, faculty and parents are treated to a performance of a play by each of the groups. The students in drama project time are responsible for props, scenery, sound and lighting.
Our Upper School drama program features an active schedule of annual productions including fall, winter and spring plays and the Poley Festival of student-directed and written works.
The program includes the study of dramatic literature, playwriting, acting and directions. Students also learn technical production, lighting, sound and set design. Read more.
