Theatre Arts

For more than 15 years, Bentley Upper School has offered exceptional plays and musicals, directed by theatre professionals and advanced theatre students. We believe that all theatre has the potential to be creative, meaningful, and professional. While Bentley has offered a wide range of productions over the years, from the classics to contemporary, recent productions include: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Twelve Angry Jurors. Recently, Bentley has worked in collaboration with New York University on a brand new Ethnodrama.
