In Middle School, drama is an integral part of the daily academic curriculum. In our unique arts program, Tandem Friends School honors and supports the cultivation of students’ growth and learning through the practice, problem solving, and artistry of theatre.
Middle School students take drama for one semester each year. In the 5th grade, classes culminate in a unique production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. 6th and 8th graders put on a Broadway musical at the end of their semester-long class. 7th graders create a class-written production called Cafe 007, with English, Art and Drama departments collaborating to put together a themed show that combines unique skits with poetry, music, dance, and films created by the students. 7th and 8th grade students also create films as part of the Drama curriculum, with 8th graders submitting films to the International Quaker Bridge Film Festival.
