About Ampersand

The Upper School’s Ampersand theatre group, conducted jointly with St. Christopher’s, launches three major productions per year in McVey Theatre, and offers countless ways for students to get involved. An advanced curriculum in theatre and technical theatre  provides instruction in topics ranging from acting to set design and construction. Students may choose to work on a technical crew, explore stage managing, tackle light or sound design, or even direct.

Outré is the joint theatre company for St. Christopher's and St. Catherine's Middle Schools. Outré produces a fall play and a winter musical with approximately 100 students participating (cast and crew) in each show. In Outré, Middle School students work together on all aspects of the theatre production. Participants are responsible for set design, construction, acting, choreography and marketing for their productions.
