Photos: Four 2018–19 drama productions represent a broad spectrum of choices, with more ways than ever for students to get involved in every aspect of the theater program.
The Convent & Stuart Hall theater program concluded its 2018–19 season in early May with a Middle Form production of Sing Down the Moon: Appalachian Wonder Tales. The show took audiences on a musical journey through familiar stories, including “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel,” all of which had a distinct twist and were brought to life with singing and dancing.
Directed by Margaret Hee, who joined the school last fall as the theater programs director, this year’s lineup featured high school productions of Metamorphoses and Love’s Labour’s Lost and Middle Form runs of The Wind in the Willows and Sing Down the Moon.
With support from Theater Manager Chris Miller and guest artists, Margaret gives space for students to take the lead as choreographers and designers for sets, lighting, costumes and sound effects. There are also new opportunities for high school students to pass on skills as peer mentors to younger cast and crew.
Below is a list of this season’s shows, with each title linked to a photo album.
