Jason Peck, Director of Theatre Arts

Shakespeare famously wrote: ‘To thine own self be true.’ The St. Luke's theater program aims to help each student achieve that noble objective by encouraging them to step into their true self, to awaken artistic passions, and to provide a theatrical catalyst for greater social awareness. How? By encouraging students to listen with the ear of their heart. And to encourage them to consider the ensemble as important as self. Regardless of future career paths, St. Luke's Theater creates a strong foundation for collaborative, empathetic, artistic creation—a foundation for success in any field.”
