The Drama Program


The theater program is an integral part of life at RCDS. Each year the school presents a Fall drama and a Spring musical and, in true RCDS fashion, the entire community is involved. Director Marsha Korb Predovic explains that the accent in our productions is always on the students’ experience “what you see on our stage is a natural presentation of their energy, their work, and their spirit.” The results speak for themselves.

Despite the school’s small size, its productions have established RCDS as a strong presence in the tri-state area, garnering regular nominations for the Metropolitan High School Theatre Awards (Metros). Many of our students have gone on to conservatory training and careers in the performing arts, most notably Sarah Kramer (Mamma Mia!) and Sebastian Stan (Kings, Gossip Girl). Even for students who do not pursue theater as a career, the RCDS theater program is a powerful expression of the creative, humanistic spirit that drives RCDS.

“Rockland Country Day School represents the best of theater as a team sport: students play in the pit and then take their place on stage for a scene or two. The casts are tiny but dedicated, as underclassmen rub elbows with seniors. It’s a joy for me to make that turn off Kings Highway, knowing that what I’m about to see will be nothing short of magical.”
