The nonprofit theater that Kevin Kearney ’09 started while still a student at Sidwell Friends has found a home in Rockville—but continues to draw talent from Kearney’s alma mater.
The Highwood Theatre, which used to produce plays in Kearney’s parents’ basement, has found a permanent home at School for Tomorrow, a new, private school in Rockville where Kearney is director of theater arts.
The students involved with the Highwood Theatre built a black-box theater with seating for 60 at the school. The theater’s first student-produced play, Aida, drew 33 students from Sidwell Friends, School for Tomorrow, School Without Walls, and Langley High School. Next up is Bye Bye Birdie in March, and in June, Crazy Runs in the Family, written by an SFS senior.
