"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts..." - As You Like It

The Theater Arts program at McCallie and Girls Preparatory School is led by Chelsea Padro. She previously taught at St. Andrew’s Sewanee School where she directed upper school productions such as Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music, Into the Woods, Much Ado About Nothing, and Robin Hood

Recent productions have included The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher, the Star Wars saga reimagined as an Elizabethan drama, as well as winter productions combining the acting and writing talents of both students and faculty!
