Dramatic Arts

Drama is a fun and engaging medium that allows students to tap into their creativity and gain confidence speaking and performing in front of an audience.

Our drama program focuses on theatre skills required for a drama performance. Students are introduced to theatre through improvisation. They explore setting, relationship and plot, combining all three elements to create in-class scenes and performances for school celebrations and concerts. More advanced courses explore acting, scripted material and performance preparation, focusing on character study, the blending of set and plot and the beginnings of larger scenes.

Outside of class, SMS students can get involved in our spring theatre production, presented throughout Fine Arts Week each year. The spring production brings together a committed team of students with diverse skill sets who work together to take responsibility for every aspect of the performance.
