The mission of the StoneBridge Drama department is to introduce students of every age to the performing arts, and to instill in them a passion for worship and excellence through their God-given talents. We want to provide them with the hands-on experience needed to grow in their skills and develop a love of redemptive story-telling.

StoneBridge Drama offers performing arts training and opportunities to students, and encourages them to discover and explore the joy of sharing stories through the art forms of theatre and film. Through the drama program, students are introduced to various aspects of theater production, including: basic acting, stage management, directing, set construction, costuming, vocal training, dance, and choreography.

While theatre and performing opportunities arise for students in every grade at StoneBridge School, StoneBridge Drama is an audition-based program. The Fall show features students in grades 6th-9th, and the major spring production features students in grades 9th-12th (with opportunities for younger grades, depending on the show). The Student Film Festival also features original films by students in grades 6th-12th. The program has also hosted summer camps for over 10 years.

Each year family and friends in the community are welcome to attend our performances.

Drama’s major production every year is a musical performed in the Spring. High school students (and sometimes even Lower Grade students) audition in the fall and rehearse yearlong. Featured musicals in the past have included “The Music Man” (2023), “Mary Poppins” (2022), “Fiddler on the Roof” (2020), “The Sound of Music” (2019), “Cinderella” (2018), Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” (2017), “The Wizard of Oz” (2016), and many others.

Film Festival

High school and middle school students can participate in the fall film course. This course provides students with basic guidance to create their own films using the tools and technology they have available. Students write their own screenplay, cast, direct, shoot, and edit. Their final short films are entered into the Film Festival in January for everyone to come watch, vote on favorites, and celebrate the winners in an Oscars-style final awards event.

Summer Camps

Drama hosts a variety of summer camps open to any students in the area. Camps include screenwriting, musical theatre (with dance and music emphases), and acting.
