Drama Programs At Boarding Schools


Immerse yourself in drama 24-7 when you attend boarding school. Successful actors and actresses who have attended boarding school include Sienna Miller, Topher Grace, Viggo Mortensen and many others.

Aside from allowing you to fully explore your love for acting and drama, you'll also have the opportunity to learn set design and building, lighting, directing and other aspects of dramatic production. All of this falls within the immersive environment of a boarding school, where the doors don't close and no-one kicks you out of the auditorium... at least until curfew.

A number of boarding schools such as Ashbury College and Bond Academy include summer programs or summer camps for acting, so you can participate all summer long, including taking on a teaching role. St. Andrew's College, an all boys' boarding school, stages a Shakespearean play every fall with high caliber sets, costumes and acting. These are just a few of the boarding schools offering a rich focus on acting and drama production.

"What I love about our theatre society is that anything difficult to produce is handled creatively and quickly by students, and you never know who's going to come up with what."

—Robin, St. Michaels University School

Drama programs that go well beyond acting

Not everyone wants to be an actor of course. Boarding schools students who take a background role in things like stage management or lighting find that this too is an outlet for aspects of their personalities. As one Albert College student admits, as stage manager, she likes being the person who knows where everything is. "I like people to need me to be a leader."
