Through drama classes and electives (8th – 12th grades), we deepen each boy’s confidence and sense of creative expression. Act, direct, and work on the crew in our supportive “repertory-style” program in three annual productions. Housed in a unique, modular, ‘Black Box’ theater, our theater arts program is led by talented faculty and supported by BL theater alumni interns, who create the perfect artistic incubator for creativity, imagination and risk-taking.
"I still feel a deep connection with the people and community that gave me a home for five incredible years. The theater arts department, run by Mrs. Molling, allowed me to focus my energy into something that I loved, something that would eventually become my passion, and something that eventually will be my career."
Our Speech program – a long-standing Boys’ Latin tradition – develops confident public speakers and eloquent story tellers. Drama and English faculty work with each middle school student and seniors to create, write, revise and present an original speech on a boy-selected topic.
Each week, a dozen live speeches are presented to the entire middle school and upper school, bringing us together as a community in the simple, impactful act of supporting each other.
