Drama

In all divisions, drama is incorporated into the academic curriculum. Lower school students participate in class plays and perform in at least one all-school production. In middle and high school, drama classes are available on an elective-basis.

Theater is offered as an extracurricular activity beginning in the 5th grade. Auditions are held for all middle and high school shows at Wesleyan. Every student, regardless of grade, is eligible for a part.
Whether you are a student wishing to pursue theater as a profession or just looking to try something new, theater at Wesleyan is designed for you.
