The performing arts programs allows all students the opportunity to participate in programs in theater and music because arts education and appreciation are critical to the Country Day experience.
Upper School theater students have two formal performance opportunities each year, enabling students to shine both on and back stage. Music and vocal students have seasonal and event-specific performances. Middle School and Lower School students participate in music performances and theater productions throughout the school year. All students are provided with avenues for viewing local theater and music performances, as well as enjoying on-campus arts assemblies, productions, and guest speakers in theater arts by area professionals.
Talented Upper School casts and crews directed by Upper School theater and speech teacher, Nick Rose, work together throughout the year to present a fall play and spring musical that the whole community can enjoy. Middle School and Lower School students also have the opportunity to join in the tradition of the school's robust K-12 theater program.
Each year, all divisions host winter concerts for all to enjoy! The students get the chance to perform songs they learned and practiced in music class for an audience.
What school year would be complete with a talent show? Each division provides the chance to all students to showcase their talents - giving them the opportunity to practice performing in front of others while sharing their talents with their peers.
