Theater education at Bishop McNamara enables students to develop intellectually by expanding their capacities for creative thought and expression and by encouraging critical thinking skills. Further, theater education fosters personal growth, self-confidence, knowledge, and a variety of skills and attitudes that are transferable to a wide range of careers.

The theatre department does a fall musical and a spring play annually to showcase the many gifts and talents of the Bishop McNamara students. Participation both on and off stage teaches students to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
