Drama is an important aspect of education and enrichment at Greenwich Academy. Drama productions provide a stage for student actors, enlist the expertise of student technicians, and celebrate individual talents, as well as collaborative efforts. In addition, every year a number of theater companies, actors, directors, and technicians visit GA and share their knowledge, experience, and cultural heritage with the students.
The objectives of the GA drama program are to teach essential theater skills and foster a love and appreciation for this art form. The drama department believes that participation in drama encourages cooperation and teamwork, helps to develop confidence and poise, gives voice to ideas and feelings that may not come out in ordinary exchanges, and helps young people to explore a variety of cultures and ways of approaching life. Faculty and students collaborate to select material that is of the best quality, age-appropriate, and inclusive, all of which reflects GA’s values as a community.
