The performing arts recognized as a vital part of school life and are supported by a broad section of the CDS community. In major productions, more than half of the student body has a part to play, whether it be onstage, or ushering, dancing or directing the spotlight.

A Flair For The Theater
Over the past years, CDS has staged musicals as varied as West Side Story and Little Shop of Horrors, has explored radio theater and, most recently, audience participation extravaganzas. The success of these projects is gratifying and due to the community of students, teachers, families and service groups that collaborate to bring live theater to the CDS community.
Leading The Way
Country Day School has hosted AASCA Performing Arts Festivals on a number of occasions and is a leader in dramatic arts in the AASCA Schools of Central America. Students have the opportunity to live and create in an atmosphere dedicated to performance and participation. Our students profit immensely from these activities, cooperating rather than competing. In fellow actors from different schools and different countries, Country Day Students discover appreciative audiences and general acclaim.
Whether it is in the Middle School Play, the AASCA Festival or just in the classroom, theater plays an important role in student life. New facilities promise progress in Performing Arts. We look forward to facilities that will allow us to continue to bring school life to center stage.
