The Princeton Academy Choir's major undertaking every academic year is the School Musical. The fully staged production is a comprehensive theatrical experience involving costumes, set, props, lighting, sound and live musicians. All Princeton Academy students in Grade 5-8 are eligible to participate in the annual production. The show is announced at the start of the school year and auditions for roles are held in mid-October. Rehearsals run Wednesday afternoons with extra rehearsals scheduled in the final weeks leading up to the production. Performance information is shared in the fall. In addition, students have opportunities to take part in various facets of the production including building and designing the set and props, assisting backstage, or helping with technical operations.
