A part of every child's curriculum, the Drama Department affords Shore students a wide range of expressive opportunities throughout the year. Creative drama encourages spontaneity, creativity, and community cooperation. Through games and exercises, students learn how to stretch their imaginations, how to be creative in a group setting, and discover the joy of playing on stage. In our afternoon option, students can explore work on stage and the excitement afforded by a theatrical performance in both informal and formal presentations. Students who prefer to be “backstage” learn how to manage the stage lighting and work the sound board, which provides essential support for productions.
In September 2013, the Drama department moved into new spaces in the Center for Creativity. The classroom is filled with natural light and the 375-seat state-of-the-art Trustey Family Theatre is the perfect backdrop for the many wonderful stage productions held throughout the school year.

“There is nothing braver than putting yourself on stage in front of your peers. Our students do it every day and are fully supported by their classmates. It’s inspiring to see students gain confidence before your eyes.”
