As early as 1891, St. John Bosco, the school’s patron, outlined the benefits of theater in the educative process. “The aim of theater is to cheer, to educate, and to instruct morally.” Fr. John Barberis, a close collaborator on Don Bosco, summed up the Salesian view saying that theater enriches the intellect, culture, and practical prudence in everyday life. The theater program at Bosco encourages and welcomes students, parents, and staff to get involved. Whether it is on stage or behind the scenes, our award-winning productions are truly a family event!
