Theater at Darrow

In arts classes and in performances of the Darrow Theater Workshop, Darrow students explore, experience, and develop technical skills in all aspects of stagecraft, from acting and directing to lighting, sound, costume, and set design.

Theater at Darrow is student-driven and collaborative by design. Students not involved in competitive sports may choose to participate in theater productions as their designated team activity. 

Another hallmark of theater at Darrow is the breadth of performance opportunities for novice and experienced theater enthusiasts alike. 

Each year features a variety of performances, including a major dramatic play or musical, and the Playwright contest that results in the production of one-act plays written, directed, and produced by students. 

Coffee Houses and other more informal opportunities are additional outlets for students with a love for the stage.

What creativity means at Darrow

It means connecting imagination to action. It means learning the technical aspects of creative expression. And it means taking risks and taking responsibility. Darrow School’s modern, dedicated facilities for visual and performing arts enable students to develop their creative potential in many disciplines. Traditional areas of study are taught through an active curriculum that emphasizes experimentation, discussion, project development, and interaction with the environment.
