Students are empowered to discover and develop their unique artistic gifts through our theater program.
The Prep Players stage two main productions each year – a fall play and a spring musical.
Students are given the opportunity to participate in all aspects of production design and direction. They are involved in working the light and sound boards, building and painting the sets, and even directing. Through acting onstage, students develop skills in character development, improvisation, and all aspects of dramatic story-telling. In recent productions, the Prep Players have partnered with a dialect coach, a fight coordinator, and Story District, a DC venue dedicated to teaching autobiographical story-telling.
Previous productions include Footloose, The 39 Steps, and Musical Revue.
The 2022-23 Performances are:
- Fall Play: A Christmas Carol
- November 11 and 12 at 7:00 pm
