Woodberry Forest School has a strong commitment to making drama and public speaking vital to the cultural life of the school. Actors, writers, directors, technicians, designers, and public speakers make it possible to actually create culture here. Studying in these areas will give you abilities that benefit you throughout your life. You will learn a reverence for language and for story-telling; you will learn to communicate in front of large groups; you will learn to work as a member of a team and complete large artistic projects; and you will learn to appreciate aesthetic experiences and to understand yourself and your world in a more sophisticated way.
BLACK BOX THEATER
The Bomb Shelter Experimental Theater is the site of three small productions each year. This small theater is the perfect setting for one-act plays or plays written or directed by students. You will have opportunities to participate in a production that you and other students manage, with some assistance from a faculty member.
