PERFORMING ARTS

Lowcountry Preparatory School offers a variety of experiences in the dramatic and literary arts.

Each year the Drama Club participates in the SCISA Regional Theater Festival with the goal of reaching the state competition.  Our students often participate with original works and have success at both the Middle and Upper School levels. 

In addition to the SCISA drama competition, students are also given the opportunity to show off their oratory skills at the SCISA Literary Meet in February. Students from Lower, Middle and Upper Schools compete in storytelling, poetry recitation, oral interpretation, and essay writing. This event is a longstanding SCISA tradition and is the largest of all the SCISA student events with at least 500 students competing.

Each spring, the Drama Class, in conjunction with an array of volunteers and performers, hosts an annual “coffeehouse” to showcase student creativity.  The event encourages students to share their talents and mimics the casual environment of an “open mic” night at a local coffeehouse.  The event is intended to be a fusion of the arts, where disciplines overlap and merge.
