Theater

From the Freshman Musical to the full-year, senior-only Honors Theater class, you'll thrive on the Peddie stage.

Our instructors - who are theater professionals - teach a wide range of courses and electives and activities sure to engage any individual with an interest in performance. You'll take a theater class your freshman year as part of our Arts Foundations program, followed by two additional electives in any area. Prefer to work behind-the-scenes? You can learn the ropes with professional stage managers, set designers, and lighting and soundboard technicians.

Our theater department stages multiple productions, including two plays, two musicals, a series of one-acts, and two public speaking and acting contests every year, giving you plenty of chances to experience the world of live performance in a variety of forms. Our proximity to Broadway serves as a two-way street; not only can you attend plays regularly in New York City (and Princeton!), but you'll also learn from visiting actors, directors, musicians and producers each year.

Kicking off this year's Mariboe Gallery exhibition schedule is Becca Lowry, a dynamic young artist whose current body of work, which she calls Shields, fall somewhere between painting and sculpture. The students of the Honors Studio class will conduct a panel discussion with Becca in the gallery to understand these objects and probe the depths of her creative process.
