Theater Program

Devon Prep presents two major productions during the school year, a fall drama and a spring musical, produced by the Devon Prep Music Society.  At the time of each production, all roles and parts are opened by audition to the entire student body as well as guest actresses from area schools. In addition, students can also participate in other areas of dramatics including: production, lighting, scene construction and management.

2014 Fall Drama: THE ELECTION

After an embattled student body president resigns in disgrace, Mark Davenport figures he will cruise to victory in the special election. After all, his only opponent is nerdy Christy Martin, who wants to eliminate football. But when a mysterious Super PAC gives her an unlimited budget, things start to get very ugly. Mark must face total annihilation or accept the services of a slick professional campaign manager with questionable ethics and a million-dollar Super PAC of his own. A hilarious and timely satire on the contemporary political scene.
