    Baron Stage is the school's dramatic organization, which is responsible for producing a play in the fall and a musical in the spring. Baron Stage is open to all students in grades 9 through 12, and meets entirely outside of the school day. Play and musical casts are selected through auditions, which take place in September and December. Audition dates are listed in the school calendar. Students with an interest in acting are encouraged to get involved with Baron Stage. There are also opportunities for students who are interested in theater but who do not wish to appear on stage.

    Baron Stage Crew

    Room: Auditorium

    Students interested in theater who would prefer not to appear on stage often join stage crew as a way to become involved in the drama program. The Stage crew meets weekly during the fall play and spring musical seasons, and more frequently in the weeks immediately preceding performances. Crew students can specialize in construction, design, lighting, sound, makeup, costumes, props and stage management. This is an excellent opportunity for any student who is energetic, creative and enjoys problem solving. There are numerous leadership opportunities available, and participating students have the opportunity to be an integral part of the Baron Stage productions.
