Theater

It doesn't matter whether you want to act, direct, write, or work behind the scenes, whether you've got loads of experience or none at allthere's a place for you in Groton's theater program.
Every term—fall, winter, and spring—features a major production. Experienced actors and first-timers earn parts in Groton’s productions—even Second Formers have snagged lead roles. If you prefer to handle the lighting, sound, or other wizardry behind a successful production, Stagecraft is a popular afternoon activity.

You can sample theater at Groton—some take the stage for the first time as seniors—or immerse yourself fully in performances and coursework. Are you a budding writer or director? Dive into the annual one-act festival, which showcases short plays written and directed by students. Want to explore theater beyond our classes? Students most serious about their craft work one-on-one with professionals through Groton’s tutorial program.
