The New School has a reputation for excellence in the theater arts. Our productions, which range from classical dramas to contemporary, thought-provoking works, have been well-received not only by the school community, but by the greater D.C. theater community and The Cappies, the critics and awards program for high school theater and journalism.
Our theater director, Wyckham Avery, has her own company, Dog & Pony DC, which was nominated for a Helen Hayes Award in 2012. Wyckham is ceaselessly energetic and committed to performance and education in the dramatic arts.
One of Northern Virginia’s best know professional theater companies, The Hub Theater (nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards in 2012), is in residence at The New School Theater, and the synergy between the school and The Hub has added a significant dimension to The New School experience for our students.
