On the Harpeth Hall stage, girls find their voice and share their stories.
Through the performing arts, girls discover their passion for the arts, develop creativity and confidence, achieve excellence, and make lifelong friends. In the theatre program, students can act and sing in many dramatic, musical, and comedy productions, and participate behind the scenes – from lighting and sound to set building and stage management.
In the middle school, creative expression is a wonderful way to build self-confidence. Theatre and speech courses give students the opportunity to explore basic communication and presentation skills. Classes are designed to allow students to practice self-expression in a space where they feel challenged, yet safe and encouraged.
In the upper school, students further their studies through specialized courses in acting, directing, musical theatre, and technical stagecraft. Outside the classroom, the Mainstage theatre season at Harpeth Hall allows students to utilize these theatrical skills in a wide range of productions for public audiences.
Get involved in theatre from your first day at Harpeth Hall.
I have been a part of the Harpeth Hall theatre program since the 5th grade. I love that theatre has allowed me to branch out and truly express myself. I have made lifelong friends, been forever impacted by mentors, and found a home in the Harpeth Hall theatre."
