Step outside of yourself in Emma Willard School's theatre program.
The Emma Willard School Theatre Department embraced the month of love in their winter production of Almost, Maine, written by John Cariani in a series of vignettes addressing themes of love and loss.
Shakespeare & Company joined students on Monday for a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The Emma Willard School Theatre Department opened this year’s season with an adaptation of Daphne DuMaurier’s short story, “The Birds” (also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's classic film). The adaptation is set in post-World War II in an isolated house, with several strangers sheltering from a relentless mass of attacking birds. Physically safe, but psychologically unsettling, the characters grapple with concepts of love and survival.
The Emma Willard School Theatre Department took a deep dive into devised theatre for their winter production, The Earthling. The story follows a time-and-space-traveling “Earthling” who arrives on Mars to help a small remnant of inhabitants solve their need for water.
The Emma Willard School Theatre Department opened this year’s season with an adaptation of the Greek tragedy Antigone by Sophocles. The adaptation, set in post-World War II Greece, follows Antigone as she struggles with the decision of whether to follow her heart—be “herself”—or bow to pressure from those in power.
