Theater at Haverford

The Haverford School Theater

The Theater Department at The Haverford School is passionate about developing the creativity, self confidence, and emotional intelligence of our boys through the study, performance, and production of great plays and playwrights. Darren Hengst, Theater Department Chair

At Haverford, you get hands-on experience in every aspect of theater. In addition to acting, you can try your hand at sound design or set design, you can take care of costumes, design and work with lighting using our computerized light board, or be a stage manager. You also have the opportunity to write, direct, cast, and produce your very own play.

The dramatic arts are an integral part of the curriculum. Drama courses are offered in the Middle and Upper School, and there is a vibrant and active extracurricular theater program. Haverford's Centennial Hall is also a popular venue for production companies outside the School.
