皮普’s 剧院 program involves coursework as well as extracurricular rehearsals and performances.
The Lower School and Middle School 剧院 programs focus on improvisation, 脚本编写, 和创造力. 非正式和正式表演的机会很多.
All Sixth Grade students take a 剧院 course and put on a production that showcases the skills learned. Seventh and Eighth Graders have the option of choosing Theater as their Performing 艺术 course. In addition, they may audition for the Middle School 音乐al each spring.
Upper School classes perform 剧院 exercises based on dramatic texts taken primarily from American contemporary 剧院. The level of sophistication increases by grade level as students learn general 剧院 history and work with plays ranging from Greek tragedy to existential 剧院.
