Not only are there three major theatrical productions each year, Shattuck-St. Mary’s offers a comprehensive training program that serves students interested in theater after high school.
Our drama classes focus on key areas such as development of the actor’s instrument, collaborative creation of original work, text analysis, scene work, and improvisation. Students study and perform a broad range of theatrical literature, from early Greek and Shakespeare to contemporary playwrights. Actors have both formal and informal opportunities to perform in: class, small scene presentations, our one-act play series, and our three yearly full stage productions.
Players Theatre Troupe
Players is an audition-only acting company. Players meet daily during the school day, but further time commitments are also required. Players have the opportunity to explore various theatrical avenues through visiting artists. They are responsible for producing all the essential aspects of an off-campus community service performance and serve as hosts for a variety of on-campus events. Players also have the opportunity to travel to other theaters to encounter, analyze and learn from their productions.
The Dramatic Association
The Dramatic Association of Shattuck-St. Mary’s is dedicated to the production, promotion, and excellence of theater arts. Founded in 1867, the Dramatic Association is the oldest and one of the most prestigious organizations at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. Senior DA members get to paint their names on the walls backstage. Talk about a lasting legacy!
