Theater thrives at NDP!

Each year NDP students are joined by boys from area schools, such as Loyola and Calvert Hall, when the Upper Level produces two full-length theatrical productions, a full-scale musical in the fall and a school play in spring. 

Annually, Middle Level students put on a musical in the winter in which students assume all performance and stage-crew roles.

Be sure to check the website often for information about current productions and by all means join us on the stage!

NDP offers an Upper Level elective academic course, Theatre Experience, for Upper Level students to explore improvisation and acting techniques, as well as technical theater and set design.
