DSHA’s annual winter play allows students a chance to participate in a non-musical theatrical production, working intensively on the craft of acting. Each play is either a comedy or drama, and often addresses a socially relevant current or historical event. Other academic departments frequently collaborate with the theatre department to create informational displays about the context of the production. All students are welcome to audition or be involved with build crew, run crew, costumes, makeup, or props. High school boys are invited to audition alongside DSHA students.
