Theatre Arts

Drama at Rawson Saunders is an exciting platform for safe expression and focused utilization of the imagination. Through their work in the classroom, students increase creativity, originality, sensitivity, fluency, and confidence while developing important communication and cooperation skills. Students learn different styles of acting including pantomime, improvisation, monologue, and scene work and study the history of the theatre. Additionally, many of our activities are used to increase the sense of community in the classroom. Students have the opportunity throughout the year to participate in school performances.

The Middle School cast & crew of Hush Little Celia, Don't Say a Word
won second place at the 2018 PSIA One-Act Competition
