The Marlborough Performing Arts Department is made up of a faculty of artist-practitioners with an abiding sense of mission as educators. As a department we are committed to artistic integrity inside of a learning environment. Students are exposed to a professionalism that they will meet when they enter the wider world… and to a diversity of artists and artistic styles, including an immersion into the classicism of established techniques. Within a framework like this, students are encouraged to nurture their own artistic eye.
We are dedicated to training in practices that cultivate conscious embodiment. We seek to nurture creative minds, strong and expressive bodies and articulate voices; to stoke the creative impulse, and to energize and contain that impulse through the various containers required by performance. Our productions are ambitious and intentional, with high artistic and production values, and are designed to engage the community in relevant dialogue.
In educating young people about the performing arts and fostering an appreciation and respect for the arts-making process, we also cultivate future arts patrons.
