Theater has become one of Providence’s strongest co-curricular programs. Started by students, the Drama Association gives students an outlet for creative expression on the stage. Participation in productions each semester has put students in contact with some of the great works of theatrical literature. The Drama Association has performed:
Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Jean Anouilh’s Antigone
One-Act Plays by Anton Chekhov
Scenes from Neil Simon’s plays
On the Providence stage, we seek to emulate God, who loves stories. Like biology or history, theater helps us understand who God is and his relationship to humanity. We also understand theater to be something that brings the community together. The Drama Association has worked in partnership with local professionals in preparation for its performances. Students are encouraged to help in all aspects for the production including set design, costumes, and acting.
