Many opportunities

Performing Arts

Public speaking and presentation skills are second nature to Pennfield students. Even our youngest students feel quite at home raising their hand to speak in our all-school Morning Assembly. Throughout the Lower School and Upper School curriculum, presentation of ideas, projects and full-scale productions are integrated into assignments in all subjects. Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade participate in weekly theatre classes, performing scene work, playing theatre games, and learn techniques for public speaking. Needless to say, when it comes to Performing Arts at Pennfield, our talent pool runs deep! In the early months of each year, anticipation on campus grows prior to the naming of the Spring Play. There are always parts for singing, dancing and speaking, as well as for technical and creative support. Taking part in the Spring Play is optional, but you would hardly know that by the number of students who pour their hearts into rehearsals, stage sets, technical wizardry and costumes. The first showing is for the entire school and is always a command performance. The second performance is for the greater community and has yet to not sell out.
