A Rehearsal of "Seasons of Love" From Rent, Our Winter Musical 2016

 

Flip through our Rent Playbill for details on our fabulously talented and hard-working cast and crew. Rent is Solebury School's 2016 winter musical.

Students at Solebury School have many different ways to participate in the theater. The most obvious is on stage as an actor, but we also have an extensive theater tech program in which students design, using CAD, and build the sets for each of our plays, design the lighting, and perform any other tasks that need to be done to prepare the theater for the show. Students also assist with costumes, make-up, and ticket sales. We offer classes in Acting, Directing, Theater History, Lighting Design, Stage Construction, Sound, and How Things Work.

The Solebury School Theater is a black box theater located in an 18th century stone barn. We present three main stage plays each year. During the fall we do a straight play (comedy or drama), in the winter we do a musical, and the spring production is often student-directed by a Solebury senior. 

Recent Solebury productions include Rent, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Curtains, Summer and SmokeFootloose, The Madwoman of Chaillot, The Drowsy Chaperone, Arsenic and Old Lace, An Evening With Shakespeare, You Can't Take It With You, Urinetown, Pippin, The Stepmother, God's Favorite, Relative Values, and Kiss Me, Kate.

Shawn Rowley Wright is our Theater Director.
