About the Theatre Program


We carefully tailor our seasons to give the best and unique opportunities for our students. We also have a Drama Club which produces its own works and does fundraising projects for both the community and for theatre program activities.

We regularly produce new works; both professional and student-written. We have had the honor to produce the world premieres of Don Nigro's, Widdershins and Lisa Soland's, Meet Cute.
