At Waring, all students are exposed to theater as a means of developing skills of interpersonal connection, collaboration, and expression. Theater is a multi-faceted experience providing students opportunities to act, design, write, and mentor younger students as they gain confidence as performers, orators, and dynamic communicators.
Waring's Theater Program is focused on nurturing students’ artistic impulses and thereby enabling them to flourish in multiple performance roles and as confident lifelong learners who create fully realized and inclusive theatrical experiences.
Waring Theater is an ensemble-based program that encourages students to participate in multiple design aspects while simultaneously fully developing their onstage potential. Through exercises, improvisation, and scene study, students increase their range of physical and vocal expression.
