The show must go on! The Performing Arts Department is planning a robust co-curricular season of shows this year including Shakespeare, contemporary plays, dance, and other original work. Students can perform, create, design, provide technical support, stage manage, choreograph, and compete on a nationally recognized speech and debate program. This fall, Milton continues the tradition of the Class IV production as well as two other plays for Classes I–III. Whether remote or in-person, we are committed to offering exciting performance experiences for all interested students.
Class IV Production
All Class IV students are invited to participate in the Class IV production. This longstanding Milton Academy tradition and fun show consists entirely of Class IV students; everyone in the class is welcome to participate, regardless of experience. The first meeting will be held virtually during the opening of school. Details about the show and meeting times will be shared at a later date.
