The performing arts at Blair are very inclusive, regardless of your level of skill and experience. Faculty members are knowledgeable about their subjects and very approachable; they work tirelessly to support you and offer opportunities to students who want them.
With four theatrical productions a year, Blair offers opportunities for thespians of all experience levels to play a role in a drama or musical. Veteran faculty directors instill “pride and poise” in the Blair Academy Players, as cast and crew bring Shakespearean tragedies, modern musicals and much more to the stage.
Students take on many roles in Blair theatre: They act on stage, serve as student directors, and work on technical crews to build sets, choose and create costumes, and run lights and sound during the show. Students may also pursue their theatrical interests in a number of academic electives that have, in recent years, included courses in theatre, musical theatre and audio engineering.
Three distinct performance venues, including open-air and black-box style theatres, grace our campus and give Blair’s actors—and audiences—a range of unique theatrical experiences.
