About

The aim of the St. Mark’s Theater Department is to engage students in the classroom, in the rehearsal hall, on stage, backstage, and in the audience on and off campus. We hope to reveal the collaborative and multifaceted nature of theater as both an art and a craft — and as an integral means of reflecting who we are as participants in the world.

The Theatre Department is an active component in the life of the school, mounting a major main stage production in the fall and the winter, and the ever-popular Student Directed One Act Workshop in the spring. There exist numerous opportunities for performers and non-performers alike, and in a typical year, a little more than 20 percent of the student body participates in the productions.

The productions vary in theme and content, and lately have included the zany, semi-improvisational Neo-futurist
  • Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind
  • Our Town,
  • The Laramie Project, a pungent chronicle of how that Wyoming community responded to the murder of Matthew Shepard, and Euripides's 5th century B.C. anti-war classic
  • The Trojan Women, adapted and updated to the war in Iraq.
