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 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 the Barn 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.

The Barn Theater

Solebury School's Barn Theater has undergone a transformation during the last five years, with all new seating, improved sound system, and a new tech booth installed to support our Solebury Theater Collective increasingly ambitious productions. The most recent addition: a new, state-of-the-art lighting system used by professional theaters, as well as college theaters. "This technology has taken our program to an incredible level of professionalism," said Theater Director Peter Martino, adding that it inspired a new theater elective, Lighting Design.
