St. Sebastian’s Drama Program has a long and proud tradition of producing outstanding plays and musicals. Through dramatics, boys develop performance and acting skills, work together as a team to bring productions to life and forge strong bonds across all grade levels. In addition to acting on stage, opportunities are plentiful for students to be involved behind the scenes as members of the crew and gain experience in technical theatre.
The Drama Club, with the participation of girls from neighboring schools, stages two major productions each year: a full-length play in the fall and an evening of one-act plays in the winter. Canonical, contemporary, and musical plays have all been staged with great enthusiasm and success. At the end of the School year, there is also a Spring Revue showcasing our Drama and Music programs.
Opportunities are available for those interested in writing and directing plays as well. In recent years, several seniors have written and directed original one-act plays for the winter production, with scripts ranging from comedic to profound. For our annual Spring Revue, students are also given the opportunity to write and direct their own short plays and skits.
For many students, the Drama Program provides a unique chance to do something out of their comfort zone. Rehearsals are scheduled around all of St. Sebastian’s team sports, so students are able to play a sport and participate in the Drama Club.
