Upcoming Arts Events

Arts events in Fall 2018 have included:

The Upper School Musical, Assassins, November 15-17, Founders Hall
This thought-provoking musical production is an investigation of the American Dream, and how different voices are heard--or ignored--in our society. It features a cast of of 45 actors, crew members, and volunteer student and faculty musicians.

the Fall Visual Arts Showcase, November 16, University Prep
The first of two large showcases for students from a wide range of art classes. The first showcase will be hosted on campus to coincide with the evening performance of the fall musical production on Friday, November 16. This showcase is an opportunity to see work from students in grades 6 through 12. In this show, we’ll highlight student projects ranging from completed pieces to more “process-based” work that shows off some of the exercises we use in class to build student skill and critical thinking around visual art.

The Middle School Play, Black Twilight, December 6, Founders Hall
Black Twilight, a compilation of The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror episodes adapted for the stage from original material by Rod Serling, Rashida Jones, and Mike Schur, wrestles with important questions, such as, How far would you go to be liked, to be loved, to have other people approve of you, include you, help you?
