Explore your passion for theater at Cheshire Academy by auditioning for our diverse range of productions!

Throughout each after-school season, we hold auditions for comedies, dramas, and musical theater, both in full-length and one-act formats. If you’re a dancer, our studio offers after-school classes in modern dance and ballet. Plus, dancers also have the chance to showcase their talents in our musical theater productions. Don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of performing arts!

Dramatic Arts is an elective available for all grade levels and can be taken multiple times. Students have the opportunity to study acting, tech theater or directing or a combination of any of the following during two-year courses for juniors and seniors:

Afternoon Program

The fall play, winter musical, and spring student-created productions which are usually directed and/or written by students allow students to get involved with the theater in any of the three seasons. 

There are many opportunities beyond acting in these productions. Students participate in leadership roles such as student directing, drama and vocal coaching, student accompanists, student musical directing, stage management, set construction, tech theater, lighting, and sound design.
