Steward’s theatre program emphasizes the process of presentation with a strong focus on imagination, personal expression, and creative collaboration. Theatre classes introduce students to performance skills, theatre terminology and styles, script analysis, and the fundamentals of design. The Steward School encourages students to participate in and develop an appreciation for the world of live performance.
Every year, students produce three main stage productions, each of which is predominantly student-run, in the Lora M. Robins Theatre, a 500-seat proscenium theatre. These productions provide participants with numerous opportunities to get involved on stage and behind the scenes, building and painting sets, working the sound board and lights, and directing and assisting with makeup and costumes.
