Students interested in the performing arts have a rare opportunity at Eagle Hill School: the chance to perform in a world class theater to an audience of regular patrons of The Center at Eagle Hill. The 468-seat Abby Theatre is home to both international music and dance productions and EHS student productions.
Two student productions (including one musical) are performed annually and students can choose from a range of music and drama classes (from improv to stage combat) during the school year. We strive to perform shows that meet the expectations of our diverse audiences and foster in our students a feeling of professionalism which strengthens their desire to pursue the theatre arts in college.
In addition, we have numerous music and acting classes, as well as private voice and instrument lessons. And for those students who are more interested in being behind the scenes instead of in front of an audience, the technical theater internship provides an opportunity to gain real-world experience working high-end musical events.
