Theatre / Productions

High school is full of drama...just ask the St. Teresa's Academy Theatre Department! Here, students interested in drama and theatrical design/production flourish. STA students have ample opportunities to get involved within the theatre program. Three shows are presented each year; a musical and a play both directed by theatre teacher Shana Prentiss, and student productions written and directed by seniors of St. Teresa's Academy.

All aspects of our productions, from stage management to lighting design, from costume to the makeup crew, are student-lead and student-organized. Students of STA's theatre program have a greater sense of ownership over their productions. Girls choosing to participate in productions not only have fun, they learn valuable leadership skills that last a lifetime.

St. Teresa’s Academy Theatre Department Proudly Presents


Blue Stockings
By Jessica Swale
February 14th – 17th
7:30 pm

Blue Stockings follows the story of four young women fighting for education against the larger backdrop of women’s suffrage. Set in 1896 at Girton College, Cambridge, the first college in Britain to admit women, The Girton girls study ferociously and match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, while the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a ‘blue stocking’ – an unnatural, educated woman. They are denied degrees and go home unqualified and unmarriageable. The play follows the women over one tumultuous academic year, in their fight to change the future of education.
