The Middle School Winter Performing Arts Showcase was held on January 27 and shared with the school community via livestream. Performances and presentations were presented by the middle school acting, dance, technical theater and improvisation classes, along with highlighted performances from a select group of instrumental ensemble and chorus members. This is an annual celebration of the process each of these classes journeyed through during the first semester culminating in a livestreamed performance.
North Shore Country Day’s annual 10-minute play festival “Take 10” returned to the stage on April 13. For the first time in three years, students performed their original plays in front of a live audience with performances in the NSCD Auditorium.
All seven plays were written, produced and directed by students in the upper school directing class. Some were based on personal experience, observations and media events, while others stemmed from pure creativity. Once the scripts were finalized, the student directors held auditions, cast the roles and ran their own rehearsals.
