Theater

Gibbons Drama is an ensemble-based, performance-driven theater program grounded in the idea that theater is best experienced through doing. In the classroom or in performance, Gibbons Drama aims to provide all members of the Gibbons community an opportunity to come together for a personal and artistically satisfying theatrical experience. Gibbons Drama plays a vital role in the cultural life of the school, producing three fully mounted plays and musicals each school year.

Classroom Experience

Gibbons Drama provides students the opportunity to explore and experience all areas of the theatrical arts, including both performance-based and technical theater classes.

Drama students engage the imagination, the voice, and the body in immersive project-based learning in a classroom environment that is supportive and challenging. In the process, drama students gain valuable skills in the areas of critical thinking, creative problem-solving, collaboration, self-discipline, self-confidence, leadership, and perseverance.

Gibbons Drama Class Offerings:

  • Drama I (freshmen-by audition)
  • Drama II (sophomores)
  • Drama III (juniors, seniors)
  • Drama IV Honors (seniors)
  • Musical Theater Workshop Honors (juniors, seniors-by audition)
  • Four levels of technical theater classes

Detailed information about all Drama Program academic course offerings can be found via the Fine Arts Course Descriptions.
