All the world’s a stage for
Saint George’s drama students

Saint George’s students perform – brilliantly. Upper School students offer rousing musicals (Little Shop of Horrors, Pirates of Penzance), romantic comedies (The Pajama Game, The Drowsy Chaperone), and enduring classics (Our Town, The Fantastics, Amahl and the Night Visitors) that bring out the best in our actors.

Students of all grade levels have the opportunity to perform on stage. First graders get wild in their Rumpus in the Rainforest songs each year, while the fifth graders put on musicals such as Alice in Wonderland or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory each spring. SchoolHouse Rock songs from the 1970's energize the sixth graders each year, while the seventh and eighth graders stage their own productions such as Seussical or The Wizard of Oz.  

Students experience a wide range of dramatic literature. Saint George’s was the first high school in the area to present The Laramie Project, a thought-provoking look at the reactions of a small town’s residents to a high-profile hate crime. This challenging production was at the center of a school-wide Focus on Tolerance Week, opening the way for students and teachers to talk about one of the school’s key values – respect for other’s feelings and beliefs. It was a moving example of bringing the Saint George’s community together in ways that only the arts at an independent school can do.

Theater reflects life and life becomes Theater. We want to nurture a love of Theater and the arts in our students.
