Drama

boy in school

Our award-winning drama program gives students the opportunity to enhance their creative thinking and broaden their personal expression.

Students in all grades hone their craft and explore their talents on stage and behind the scenes. Each year, they work as a team to present up to six outstanding productions including musicals, dramas, and one-act plays. Students can choose to perform by acting, singing, and dancing or develop their production strengths through stagecraft, choreography, and directing.

The quality of our theatre arts program and students’ individual and troupe work has been recognized with multiple Cappie Awards (Philadelphia Critics and Awards Program), the equivalent of the Tony Awards for high school students. Praising the impact of their drama experiences here, many Barrack graduates have pursued careers in the theater and arts, with some going on to work on Tony Award-winning productions.
