All the World’s a Stage
The Middle School theater arts program offers students a workshop space for developing their dramatic skills, as well as collaborative ensemble-building techniques. Boys explore different aspects of theatre by making it. The process-based classes hold multiple informal performances throughout the year as the boys learn monologues, scenes, and improvisation. They collaborate regularly with the Upper School film classes, providing filmed material for editing. One formal performance in the spring offers an overview presentation of many of the year’s projects and theatre games.
An extracurricular fall musical is produced jointly with Greenwich Academy each year. This offers students from any performing arts class an opportunity to take the stage at the Upper School’s Baker Theater in a full production. They also have the chance to work behind the scenes, running all of the technical aspects of the performance.
