Take Your Place in the Cast or Crew

You don’t need to be experienced on or behind the stage to join the theater program at Canterbury—it is open to all students. You can participate as an actor or a member of the technical crew building the sets, costumes, and props for the fall and spring stage productions.

Fall Play

Each fall, the School presents a non-musical play on the Maguire Auditorium stage. Rehearsals for the production are held in the evenings prior to study hall so students can participate.

Spring Musical

When springtime comes, a major musical is staged with a professional pit band or orchestra. Just as in the fall, you will work on this production in Maguire in the evenings.

As a creative student, you are nurtured every step of the way and may even end up performing in or working on every production during your time here. Many graduates have gone on to become theater professionals or community theater members. And even if you don’t continue with it, you will gain a lifelong love and respect for theater.

In addition to our two directors who are full-time faculty members, a part-time technical director assists and many faculty members volunteer their time and talents on and off the stage.
