Theater

Each year, Solebury students bring several productions to the stage for the community to enjoy. We pride ourselves on the professionalism of our productions and rigorous theater curriculum, including classes such as Shakespearean Acting, Directing for the Stage and SoleStage Theater Tech. Students showcase their talents in a drama in the fall, a musical in the winter, and a Shakespeare production or student written and directed one-acts in the spring.

The theater tech program honors Solebury's philosophy of getting students to pursue their passions. The tech crew transforms our wonderful black box theater, designing and building each set from scratch. Students are trained how to run the light and soundboards, construct the sets, and manage the stage.

Announcing our 2018-19 Solestage Player Productions!

The Fall Play: Let the Right One In (tickets are SOLD OUT!)
We are thrilled to bring this cutting-edge play to the stage! It is a chilling fairytale with mature themes, originally penned by Swedish writer John Ajvide Lindqvist and adapted for the stage by playwright Jack Thorne, who won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Play for his work on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Please note: it is not recommended for those under 13 years old (or those with an intolerance for gore).
