A 1940’s USO Show, an original depression era musical about mining town Dante, Virginia, a sci-fi play adaptation of “The Machine Stops” by E.M. Forster – these are some of the fascinating projects created by the Renaissance School Theater and Music students.
Theater teacher Bridget Mitchell and Music teacher Jay Pun have a unique approach to the performing arts that maximizes their students’ creativity and involvement, guiding them through everything from script and songwriting to scene design and public relations.

This year, Renaissance students have taken a one-act play based on a book by Nobel Prize-winning German writer Thomas Mann and turned it into the musical, “Zaza.” The book for this musical was written by Renaissance School teacher Dr. Andrea Rowland and first produced over twenty years ago at James Madison University. Thomas Mann is known for his long literary explorations of moral philosophy, but Dr. Rowland based “Zaza” on the only frivolous book Mann ever wrote, an unfinished work entitled The Adventures of Felix Krull.

Don’t miss this delightful 1920’s era farce, featuring witty repartee, a tango with an ulterior motive, and an impressive original score by Renaissance School Music students!
