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. Beyond taking a theater class during your freshman year, there are a variety of elective course offerings and extra-curricular opportunities in which you can further develop your craft. 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, a Public Speaking Competition and a Declamation contest each 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.
