The Theatre Department Grows at Grove

February 1, 2017

2016 was a marquee year for Grove School’s theater productions!

For the first time in years, our talented thespians tackled Shakespeare by presenting one of his broadest comedies. Much Ado About Nothing. The large ensemble cast spent months learning the intricacies of the Bard and the stage crew worked diligently to create a set design using only the artwork of fellow students. The result was a unique combination of traditional Shakespeare and modern style. Both performances were huge successes, delivering creative evenings full of laughter and artistic expression.

This was followed up just a few months later with Grove School’s annual musical, an exciting production of A Chorus Line. As one of the longest running shows in Broadway history, this Pulitzer Prize winner provides a personal glimpse into the personalities of more than a dozen performers as they prepare for the audition of their lives. This show included elaborate choreography and was Grove’s first musical to feature a live pit orchestra of student musicians. With more than thirty students contributing either on-stage or behind the scenes, the entire community could feel connected to a show that was proudly presented, and full of creatively inspired goosebumps!
