Program

At the core of each experience in drama is a commitment to collaboration, creativity, and risk-taking. Every creative process represents a journey.

Holton offers opportunities in all aspects of performance and production. There are opportunities to act, direct, write, stage manage, and design for small and large-scale dramatic productions. There is equal respect for student contributions in all areas of theater; the technician is celebrated to the same degree as the actor. Curricular study in drama occurs during the traditional school day and beyond.

Students will learn the safety standards and practices utilized within a working theater and scene shop as well as studying theatre vocabulary, backstage procedures and theater etiquette.

Students are exposed to the collaborative creative process and will have opportunities to use their new skills to create actual elements for use in Middle and Upper School drama productions, musical concerts, and dance performances.
