NDA's award-winning theatre department produces two major productions each year, including one play and a show-stopping musical.

As an NDA student, you can participate in the theatre program as a performer, theatre technician, stage manager, or dance caption. There are also opportunities to study performance as well as costumer, set, and lighting design – so get ready to take the stage at NDA.
