Theatre at The Cambridge School of Weston seeks to create whole theatre arts students by offering a challenging but supportive and inclusive set of performance opportunities as well as acting and technical theatre classes. We seek to foster a love for this collaborative art form through innovative, purposeful, socially aware programming that can raise awareness of self and others, strengthen cultural understanding, build community, and foster creativity.

We are an equal opportunity community that believes that everyone is responsible for the group by also being responsible for themselves. We value deepening our theatre skills and challenging ourselves to grow through rigor, dedication, self-care, joy, laughter, and building awareness of self and others.
