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 year. 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.

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.
Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.
