The Delbarton Theater program seeks to introduce students to the art of theater in all its variety, to guide them in developing their craft through a positive and supportive rehearsal process, and to showcase their hard work and talent through performance. Delbarton has an active program in which students can explore all facets of the theater, from scene construction, lighting, and sound to acting, writing, and directing.

Delbarton stages three productions each ear. Our mainstage company, the Abbey Players, produces a straight play in the fall and a musical in the winter, while the spring season is capped by the Delbarton One-Act Festival, an entirely student-produced festival of one-act plays. All productions are mounted in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium, a 600-seat theater that opened in 2006. As Delbarton is a boys’ school, we welcome female actors to join our program through open auditions for each production.

Current Production

The Delbarton Abbey Players are delighted to announce this year's fall play:

The Servant of Two Masters

by Carlo Goldoni

Drawing on the Italian tradition of commedia dell'arte, Goldoni's quick-witted and deft masterpiece is structured around complications, improvisations, miscommunications, mistaken identities and outright deceptions. The play revolves around the wily, greedy servant Truffaldino who, in trying to fill both his purse and his stomach, attempt to serve two masters simultaneously.

Auditions for The Servant of Two Masters will be held August 29-30 from 3-5pm in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium, with callbacks August 31. Actors are asked to prepare a short monologue from the choices linked below for Tuesday's session; click here to schedule an audition appointment. (PLEASE NOTE: a bug in Google Calendar for some users causes appointment slots to be displayed in the UTC time zone, +4 hours from EDT. After signing up, the confirmation e-mail will show the correct time.) Contact Director Matt Corica ( with questions.
