Archer’s Theatre Program develops students' creative confidence while enhancing performance technique and skill.
Through acting, improvisation, and public speaking, students learn to build and refine their creative expression. Archer’s theatre program has gained national recognition and most recent productions have garnered numerous National Youth Arts Awards and multiple Jerry Herman awards including Best Ensemble, Lighting, and Costumes.
The academic program offers introductory and advanced theatre classes to develop students’ acting technique, character development, and scene-writing.
Student actors can participate in our full-stage Middle School and Upper School musicals and plays. Recent performances include The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Tommy, Chicago, Alice in Wonderland, Seussical, Metamorphoses, Little Shop of Horrors, Bye Bye Birdie, and Into the Woods.
Production crews are student-led, so girls learn the technical aspects of theatre, including direction, stage design, lighting, and sound design.
