- About Bay View
- Why Bay View
- Lower School
- Middle School
- Upper School
In just the past 5 years, over one thousand students have participated in our premiere performing arts program. Whether in the spotlight or behind the scenes, the girls of Bay View are truly an inspiration.
Bay View puts on three major productions a year: a rousing fall musical performance, like “Godspell” and “Nunsense;” an inspiring spring Drama Festival production; and the annual “Cabaret” performance during the Academy’s major fundraising event, Manhattan at the Bay. This two-hour production showcases the talents of close to 200 of our own vocalists, actors and dancers.
For more than two decades, the Bay View Players have participated in the RI State Drama Festival, winning six titles and several alternate positions. We’ve also represented Rhode Island in the New England Drama Festival with adaptations of pieces like Lillian Hellmann’s “The Children’s Hour” and Muriel Spark’s “The Prime of Miss Jean Brody.” And in 2010, the Bay View Players were awarded the prestigious Franco Coli Ensemble Award for our performance of Brian Friel’s “Dancing At Lughnasa.”
