Upper School students may choose from several theater classes, which include monologue, ensemble and directing workshops to studying a production from lighting design and set construction. The audition-based productions offer opportunities for students at every experience level. Students interested in technical theater build, run and design shows on state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment. Held every spring and fall, the School’s Main Stage productions take place in Garland Theater, a proscenium thrust stage.
During 7th and 8th Grade, every student takes one semester of drama culminating in the end-of-semester Middle School Arts Gala, which showcases student work. Students may also audition for the Middle School musical, held each winter in Garland Theater.
Children from the Three-Year-Old Program through 5th Grade enjoy opportunities for classroom performances at class plays and events. Preschool students from the Three's class and the Pre-K showcase their talent in an annual spring play which is performed in Garland Theater. Students in the Lower School (Kindergarten - 5th Grade) perform in class plays and other culminating events for parents and other members of the Garrison Forest community.
