Posted October 9, 2012
For the last 10 years, St. Andrew’s has been committed to taking the entire Upper and Middle schools to dramatic productions across the Washington region.
By experiencing the creative energy and power of live performances, St. Andrew’s students often have the opportunity to compare and contrast literary works and the plays and musicals they inspired.
On Thursday October 11, the 11th and 12th grades will voyage down to Studio Theatre to witness the award-winning dramatization of Ralph Ellison's classic novel, Invisible Man.
~Dismissal at 9:10 am. Missing periods 4, 7, and 8.

On Thursday October 18th, the 7th and 8th grades will venture down to Ford's Theatre to see the award winning play, Fly. (Leaving at 9:30 and returning at 1:30pm)
