we act with all our hearts
The Delbarton Theater program introduces students to the art of theater, guiding them to develop their craft through a supportive rehearsal process, and to showcase their hard work and talent through professional-quality productions. Students explore all facets of the theater, from scene construction, lighting and sound, to acting, writing, and directing. We stage three productions each year through Abbey Players, our main stage company: a fall drama and a winter musical, and a spring One-Act Festival, a student-produced festival of one-act plays.
All productions are mounted in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium, a modern 660-seat theater. As a boys’ school, Delbarton welcomes female actors to join our program through open auditions throughout the year.
