Performing Arts


The Theater Program introduces students to the art and discipline of the theater as a means of individual and collaborative expression. Faculty members seek to inspire greater empathy and broaden each student’s perspective through the exploration of characters and concepts that expand our horizons and challenge our preconceptions. Student actors, directors, and designers have the opportunity for focused study through the program’s curricular offerings, as well as the option to participate in co-curricular (after school) theater productions.

The coordinate drama program (shared between St. Albans and the National Cathedral School) provides classroom instruction and extra-curricular experience in theater for students in the first through sixth forms. Lower School drama courses are offered for Form I and II students. Class offerings for the Upper School include acting, directing, stagecraft, public speaking, theater design, stage productions, and filmmaking.

We look forward to bringing you the following productions in the 2016-17 school year:

Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
