Theatre in the Middle School
Middle School students can experience theatre by signing up for the Activity Period Acting classes, which explore acting techniques and audition skills; or by participating in the huge, annual Middle School Musical, in which students of all experience levels and abilities are invited to participate and learn from our theater professionals, with stunning results and rich memories.
2020 Musical - Roald Dahl's "Matilda: The Musical." (Virtual)
The annual Middle School Musical is a highly anticipated event each year. In 2020, the production was to be Roald Dahl's "Matilda: The Musical." Just ten days before opening night, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the School to move to Shelter in Place and distance learning.
Thirty-one middle schoolers had spent months, hard at work memorizing lines, songs and dance routines so all were committed: the show must go on. And so, under the direction of Erica Smith, with musical direction by Monica Norcia, choreography by Doree Clark and technical support from Hannah Ozeran—we present a historic, first ever virtual performance. Please enjoy When I Grow Up from Matilda: The Musical.

The musical starts with a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the ball; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and be free.
