Theater Department Philosophy

The Drama Department offers formal training and production experience in a wide span of acting and stagecraft styles and periods in the Upper School, and in the Middle School technical training in stagecraft and playwriting. In the lower and middle schools the department seeks to support the school's academic curriculum by infusing drama in the classroom in a variety of disciplines such as reading and social studies.


The Music Man

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 with a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

When Harold Hill, a traveling con man, arrives in River City, he convinces the locals to start a band by purchasing the uniforms and instruments from him. His intention is to flee as soon as he receives the money. Librarian Marian Paroo suspects Harold is a fraud, but holds her tongue since her moody brother, Winthrop, is excited about the band. As Harold begins to develop feelings for Marian, he faces a difficult decision about skipping town.
