Director of Theater Kirsten McKinney says of her students, “Their love and passion for what they do is so palpable. … I love this age group because they haven’t lost their joy of play.”
The Theater Program at St. Paul’s School is designed to provide a fun, inclusive, creative space for all students — both on-stage and off.
We support students who have never before participated in theater and also those who have a desire to study theater in great depth during their time at SPS and beyond. We firmly believe that theater is a process and that our students are always evolving and growing as people and artists. Our approach is therefore student-centered and provides various entry points to perform on stage and explore and be involved in all aspects of technical theater.
