Performing Arts

Big Thinker. 

Developing each child's voice 

The Davis Academy is leading the way nationally in comprehensive, integrated Theatre Arts Education. The Theatre Program reaches Fourth-Eighth graders on a daily basis where students form vocally confident and empowered identities, develop an awareness of the world around them; and learn to work collaboratively. Theatre is connected into every other class content area from Jewish Studies to Science. Over 65% of the students are involved in the Theatre Program whether in the annual musical, the exploratory, electives, or after-school programming. Students are introduced to the building blocks of Theatre Arts skills and knowledge through applying basic theatre terminology, stage directions, physical skills, kinesthetic movement, emotional recall, playwriting, collaborative design and group performance projects.

We are committed to developing and nurturing each child’s passions and unique voice on and off the stage. We encourage students to become big picture thinkers, champions of creative play,
innovators, and collaborative
communicators.

Director of Visual & Performing Arts

Aladdin Jr. 

We are excited to announce that this year's all-school musical will be Aladdin, Jr.! With the participation of over 180 students, ranging from Mechina to 8th grade, we will be able to showcase their talents on stage and reach an audience of more than 2800 people through our performances and outreach shows. Aladdin, Jr. is a Broadway-style musical that promises to be the most magical and energetic show yet! It is based on Disney's 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway production.

Our nationally recognized Broadway-style musical is a yearly highlight and one of the most unique experiences that Davis offers. The Davis student body comes together on stage and behind the scenes to participate in the musical. From the smallest to the tallest, everyone has a place on the Davis stage, receiving the full "Broadway" treatment and playing an important, integral part in the annual all-school musical. Students act, laugh, dance, sing, and share a signature collective "WOW!" that is incredible and unique to Davis.
