Performances on Hebron's stage integrate life, literacy, learning, and community, and celebrate the strong character development that is a hallmark of Hebron's educational experience. Young actors and actresses learn poise, confidence, and other public speaking skills they will draw on throughout their lives. By exploring different roles and personalities, they most often find within themselves something that can only be discovered through a dramatic performance. Students working backstage develop knowledge of construction, design, and artistic techniques, or learn stage management and production skills.
Student dramatic performances are one of the highlights of the year, both in the Middle and Upper Schools. Three out of four Hebron students have played a role in at least one Hebron production. The all-school musical takes place near the end of winter term, and is supported by faculty directors, student and professional musicians, and a core group of committed Upper School thespians. Middle Schoolers take the stage in March or April with their annual production. In the spring, Upper School students cast, direct, and produce one-act plays.
