WHO WE ARE The Performing Arts Boosters plays an important role in the school’s mission by fostering student enthusiasm for artistic endeavor in the various drama, chorus, band, orchestra, and jazz programs on all three campuses. During the course of the school year, every single student in the Lower and Middle Schools participates in at least two major performances. In the Upper School students make selections from more than a dozen performing arts programs and classes, in addition to putting on major plays and concerts.
WHAT WE DO
Throughout the year the Performing Arts Department has needs on all three campuses relating to performances, equipment, and trips. This volunteer committee raises funds to enhance these programs and works to boost the enthusiastic support for our talented students and faculty who make up the performing arts collectively. All funds raised by the PAB are made possible through Encore Donations and Pizza/Cookie Sales in the Middle and Upper Schools. Check out this sampling of gifts the boosters have given in the past few years!

The Fall Play “As You Like It”by William Shakespeare

Fleeing persecution disguised as a shepherd boy, Rosalind and her cousin escape into the Forest of Arden. There she meets her love, Orlando, and forms a teasing friendship with him.
