Christ School produces three productions every year, often a musical and two plays. Recent productions include And Then There Were None and Lord of the Flies.
Productions take place in Pingree Theater, which boasts a full proscenium stage, dressing rooms, lighting system, and excellent acoustics. This gives you room to explore set design, lighting, and sound techniques as well as acting. It also seats more than 250 people, which allows you to present your work to the entire Christ School community as well as the general public.
Putting on a play is a real-life skill that brings together academics, athleticism, and professionalism. Through Christ School’s Theater Program, students are exposed to opportunities including technical work, set building, and lighting in addition to acting. Theater Programs improve scholasticism while also building confidence and leadership, teaching self-discipline, promoting communication, and increasing compassion - it is a vital element to a well-rounded education.
