The study of theater nurtures ideas and dreams through the exploration of literature. Our goal is to present our students and their audiences with a wide variety of theatrical experiences. Students learn to project emotional honesty and to investigate fine nuances of human character as they perfect their craft.
In 3rd-6th grades, students experience theater via extracurricular productions. From the 7th grade, our program is integrated into the daily curriculum alongside extracurricular shows, festivals and competitions. Discovering the truth about places, people and things we can only imagine lets us uncover those truths within each of us.
In the Upper School, students have access to a professional stage in the Thurber Arts Center. They are involved in all aspects of production, including direction, lighting, set design and construction. Since its opening in 2009, students have created a Venetian palace, a country house with secret passages, a high school gym and the streets of Victorian London.
In addition, Theatre Randolph strives to make an impact on our community. Canned food drives and an annual AIDS Awareness Week allow us to give back to the community which so graciously supports us.
