Students interested in the theater have opportunities for learning and exploration both in the classroom and during extracurricular-activity time in the afternoons.

Upcoming Production

“Mean Girls”, the brutally hilarious musical from book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). This queen bee took Broadway by storm and has joined the musical in-crowd. Adapted from Fey's hit 2004 film, Mean Girls was nominated for a staggering 12 Tony Awards.

Theater Classes

Theater classes are part of SG’s arts curriculum and range from beginning coursework in the foundational skills of vocal projection, active listening, diction, presence, physical awareness, and script analysis to advanced study in performance, design and/or technology.

Afternoon Program

Budding actors, stage technicians and musicians have their chance the chance to shine. Large-scale productions — which have included classic Broadway musicals and modern interpretations of old favorites — require student-actors to audition for roles and attend regular rehearsals. Interested musicians can audition for the pit crew and attend scheduled rehearsals as well. Students interested in setting up lighting, making costumes and learning the ins-and-outs of putting on a big show, can join the stage crew. Each of these roles requires a considerable amount of time, commitment and effort. As a result, students can substitute a theatrical production for athletics as a part of the required afternoon activity.
