Students are given the opportunity to participate in three Theatre productions during the academic year: a full-length play in the fall, our student one-acts in the winter and a full-length play or musical in the spring. Our productions are held in The Walter Reade, Jr. Theater, a well-appointed, professional performance space, with seating for 240. Close proximity to New York City affords us the ability to expose students to exciting Broadway and off-Broadway productions.

Experience in Theatre Arts increases our students’ capability for self-expression and deepens their capacity for self-discovery. Team-work is emphasized in all areas of play production. Classes in theatre production are also offered.

Classes Offered

Stagecraft is the study of technical theatre. This class introduces students to a practical approach in both technical and production aspects of theatre. Students learn the skills needed to construct scenery, hang and focus lighting instruments and a variety of other techniques.
