Whether interested in acting, directing, stage management, or theatrical design, there are many opportunities to be involved in theatre at Lawrenceville. Our mission is to impart in our students vivid self awareness and a comprehensive process for creating stageworthy theatre through a multifaceted, but structured, approach. Through Harkness discussions and projects, we observe, collaborate, discuss, and reflect in rehearsal — debating our ideas in shaping conflict and relationship for the stage.
As students develop their own creative skills, they come to a deeper understanding of themselves and others in the process. We welcome objective feedback of each other's work and revel in the process of getting there.
No matter where your level of interest in theatre calls you, there are myriad opportunities for students at all levels to get involved with Theatre at Lawrenceville.
Our big musical production is put on in the Kirby Arts Center during family weekend each year.
WinterFest is Lawrenceville's student-led theatre festival. Students cast, direct, and often write their own dramatic or comedic productions, taking charge of entire stage crews to bring their artistic vision from script to the stage.
