The Theater Department is engaged in the investigation and performance practice of the dramatic arts. Together we open up the boundless opportunities of creativity, communication, and language of performance on stage.
The Drama Department collaborates with ECC and ES faculty to integrate dramatic performances into the core curriculum where appropriate and relevant.
The Middle School Drama department produces a Drama Showcase of monologues and scenes, as well as an annual musical, sometimes in conjunction with the High School's musical theater productions. Middle School drama students often are highlighted in the Student Spotlight Assemblies.
The High School hosts a yearly Nido Drama Festival, together with Monologue and Improv evenings, and one major play production and musical theater performance. The Theater Department offers High School students a choice of Improv, Devising, One Act, Theater Ensemble, and IB Drama courses.
