About theatre in Hamden....Our theatre department has been well known throughout the state and region for many years. Beginning with great teachers and directors like Joseph Juliano and Julian Schlusberg, the department has always worked to provide students the opportunity to explore the worlds of acting and technical theatre, through classes and after-school productions. The theatre department believes that educational theatre should be a training ground for students. A focus on creativity, communication, empathy, safety and professionalism helps prepare students for things to come later in life, whether in theatre or other careers. The Hamden High Mainstage Ensemble and Hamden Middle School Center Stage provide students the opportunity to put their learning into practice with a play and musical each year.
