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.
