Students interested in participating in drama have many options. The Upper School
stages a major musical production in the fall and participates in the Massachusetts State Drama Festival in the winter. More experienced students who have shown a commitment to the theatre program may submit a proposal to direct. Students are also encouraged to work as designers, technicians, and stage managers. The Upper School also offers a Technical Theatre elective for students interested in stagecraft: the art of set design, lighting and sound mixing.
