Theater is part of everyone’s experience at SAAS. In Middle School, there are theater classes each year, and 7th and 8th graders can choose options such as a class, a production, or behind-the-scenes design work. In Upper School, one theater credit is required for graduation, and there are a wide variety of during-the-day classes and after-school productions to choose from.
In addition to the many theater classes and shows that are available to all students, there is also an Intermediate and Advanced Acting "audition track" for those students who want to make a more focused commitment to skill and repertoire development through practice and study. The fall musical and the spring play are open to all Upper School students, while the cast of the winter play is drawn from the Intermediate and Advanced Acting classes.
