Theatre

Our mission in the performing arts at York School is to discover and develop each student’s unique skills and talents while emphasizing artistic excellence. We seek to nurture a vibrant, collaborative arts community that builds confidence and creativity while bringing our students together in a powerful shared experience.

Imagine it. Create it. Practice it. Perform it. Take a bow.

THEATER GENERAL INFORMATION

Students can perform onstage, run the technical side of lights and sound, or write a one-act play. Students are presented with challenging material that integrates the students’ analytical minds with their emotional and physical selves as they learn to connect with and inspire an audience. Musical Theater is one of the most collaborative art forms and we encourage students to engage in all different facets. 

Each year we produce a Fall Musical, Winter Play, and Spring Student One-Acts. Each production will have auditions, generally a week before rehearsals start. The upcoming theatrical season is announced in May.

PRODUCTIONS

FALL MUSICAL - Each year we choose a piece of musical theatre that will give our students the best opportunity to shine. We are an inclusive community that tells stories so that our community can learn, grow and be entertained. The Fall Musical is open to everyone who is interested, grades 8-12; there are no cuts. Performances are two weekends in November.
This year we are proud to present: CHICAGO, High School Edition. Directed by Mr. Williams, Assistant Director, Mr. John Daniel.

WINTER PLAY - The Winter Play opens in late February and is auditioned just before semester exams, with rehearsals starting the first week of January. Cast size will depend on production. Directed by: Ms. Sherry & Mr. Bloom

SPRING ONE-ACTS - The Spring Student One-Acts are short 10-minute plays written by members of our community, directed, performed, and staged by our students. The One-Acts are presented at the Festival of the Arts in May in conjunction with our awards night.
