Drama & Theater

CSG’s theater training specializes in developing confident girls comfortable with 21st-century skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Classes and productions are developed in an ensemble format and enable the students to learn how to use problem-solving strategies, take direction, and acquire the discipline necessary for high-quality performances. Participants learn empathy through the process of creating character. Creativity and risk-taking are encouraged as students develop confidence in their abilities in both performance and design. Students have the opportunity to build and refine technique, develop analytical and critical skills, and increase their repertoire of expressive tools. Students who study stage management acquire unique leadership skills and opportunities. Technical students are challenged with state of the art lighting and sound equipment in the new Agnes Jeffrey Shedd Theater. All classes allow students to grow in their involvement and appreciation for the process of the art as well as for the final performance.
