The Arts


Taking Center Stage

The theater program at Bush is an authentic process based exploration of the theater arts designed for all students to learn self expression and collaboration through original creation, physical and vocal skill building, text analysis and performance. The theater program is offered for Middle School and Upper School students.

  • Middle School Theater

    Middle School theater students work in assigned ensembles and partnerships, experiment with movement and voice, explore character creation and comedy, learn puppetry techniques, engage in beginning costume and set design, and work on performance storytelling concepts for multiple audiences. In theater class, students build the skills of self-expression and performance for school production opportunities connected to our Middle School E-lective program.
  • Upper School Theater

    Led by Upper School Director Hilary Moore ’10, the Upper School Theater Program gives students the opportunity to express themselves on stage and off. Students have the option of collaborating and envisioning productions and helping with the sets, design, costumes, lighting, media, and more behind-the-scenes action through the technical side of the program. In the fall of 2021, the Bush theater program put together an entirely student-led production of “The Memory Eaters,” a script written by Bush alumna Hannah Merrill ’11.
