A Midsummer Night's Dream
by William Shakespeare
October 28-November 1, 2014

Theater & Dance

"By their very nature, both Theater and Dance encourage and foster self-expression, collaboration, exploration, and growth. Through active participation in our classes, and through engaging in the performance opportunities we offer, students hone their art, and their craft, here in The Norris Ely Orchard Theater. We get to witness student actors, dancers, designers, managers, and technicians make discoveries every day that reveal new facets of their individuality."
— Candice Chirgotis, Head of Theater & Dance Department

Not every future actor or dancer arrives at Loomis Chaffee knowing already that he or she wants to be “on stage", but we have a place for everyone. Whether you are new to the performing arts, or an advanced performer looking to hone your skills alongside talented and experienced professionals, you will discover new talents through our extensive curricular and extracurricular offerings.

From performance to production, from stage management to technical theater, and from ballet to hip hop, there are so many options. With an immense amount of support from our community, you will find a packed house is the norm at the numerous productions that take place in the historic NEO Theater — including the fall drama production, the winter musical, the one-act playwriting festival, and the spring dance revue.


Loomis Chaffee's Norris Ely Orchard Theater stage has been transformed into a magical and metaphysical world in a spirited interpretation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, this year's selection for the fall theater production.

William Shakespeare’s comedic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is being staged by Loomis Chaffee students in the Norris Ely Orchard Theater next week.

The Spring Dance Revue, a culmination of the year's work for Dance Companies I and II,various dance classes, and choreography class last week highlighted the talents of the school's hip-hop, modern, jazz, tap, and classical ballet dancers.

For two days last week, the Norris Ely Orchard Theater presented five 10-minute plays written, produced, acted, and directed entirely by students.
In the week leading up to Earth Day, Loomis Chaffee dancers met with guest artist Sonia Plumb to choreograph an original piece tying into the theme of climate change, which dancers performed on Earth Day for students, faculty, and staff at an all-school convocation.
