The Delbarton Theatre program seeks to introduce students to the art of theatre 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 theatre, from scene construction, lighting and sound, to acting, writing, and directing.

Delbarton stages three productions each year. Our main stage 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 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.
