The theatre program promotes students' appreciation of theatre as a literary and performing art. Academic courses cover all aspects of theatre, including acting, play production (ranging from set design and lighting to makeup), directing, the history of theatre, public speaking, playwriting and storytelling. Involvement in dramatic productions produced by the Hotchkiss Dramatic Association (HDA) is open to all students and is a popular co-curricular activity. Students from theatre courses present a number of studio workshop plays each year, and, under the auspices of HDA, stage two major plays, a musical, which are open to the public.

All Hotchkiss students have opportunities to study music, studio art, theatre, photography, film, related media, and dance, whether as a serious discipline or a new found interest.
