Our drama department is located in a black box theatre classroom in the lower school.  Students in grades 4-12 have the unique opportunity to study the art of theatre in a creative and nurturing environment.  Several graduates that studied drama at Renaissance Academy have moved on to become filmmakers, screenwriters, playwrights, college theatre majors, and professional working actors.
