All Chesterton Academy students participate in a full-length drama production in their sophomore, junior, and senior years. This year’s productions included “Nuns and Aliens,” and “More Bodies, Please” new plays by Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society and co-founder of Chesterton Academy.
In addition to required drama classes, Chesterton Academy offers its students the opportunity to participate in a Spring Theatre Production. In 2009, Chesterton Academy students teamed up with the high school students of Holy Family Home Educators to perform Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” to sold out audiences. In 2010, the groups joined forces again to produce Anne Coulter Martin’s “Paint the Town Pink,” and in 2011 they performed Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities.”
