Lower and Middle School
In pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, dramatic play and appropriate dramatic activities are a part of the daily curriculum. Students in fourth through eighth grades take drama as a separate course. The main goals of the drama program are to allow the students to develop a sense of themselves as creative and expressive individuals with responsibilities to a larger community, to be comfortable with risk-taking, to learn movement and drama skills, and to develop critical and creative thinking skills. Over the course of their stay in the Lower/Middle School, students enjoy a variety of dramatic performing opportunities.
Revived after many years, the Middle School Fall Musical offers interested middle schoolers an after-school immersion in musical theater. Auditions are held and crews recruited, and rehearsal begin shortly after school opens in September in anticipation of performances in November.
