FOR THE LOVE OF DRAMA

In drama classes, the Viola Spolin method is used as a basis for theater training for comedy and straight drama. Students learn improvisation and present various scenes to classmates for discussion and critiques. The Upper School productions generally include Shakespeare in the fall and a musical in the spring that brings Broadway a little closer to home.

Upcoming Events

UPPER SCHOOL FALL MUSICAL PRODUCTION:
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
November 4 - 14, 2022

SIX SPELLERS ENTER. ONLY ONE WILL WIN. WHO WILL IT BE?

As six spellers compete to advance to the National Spelling Bee, they discover that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't mean you're a loser. Through the rounds of the bee, they navigate the various challenges of spelling, puberty, and friendship. 
Mature Audience Warning: Though this is a funny, sweet, and heartfelt show with a strong positive message, please be advised that it also has some themes and language, especially concerning puberty, that may be challenging for younger audience members.
