Jennifer Hudson
Director of Choral & Dramatic Activities

12916938_820894574709163_3862483967279792089_oUnder the direction of Mrs. Jennifer Hudson, students who participate in Drama at Providence not only develop their dramatic skills as an actor, but they also learn the importance of team work and responsibility to others. A student crew is also formed to support each production teaching leadership and the technical aspects of stage production, including costuming, stage makeup, lighting, set design and construction and stage management. In addition to a Musical Theatre class that performs for the community and the school, the Drama department performs an Annual Spring Musical that is open to the public.

Providence also has the distinct honor of having an International Thespian Honor Society which recognizes those exceptional students who excel in all areas of theatre production. Providence School won first place in the national Scenographics set competition for the sets used in our production of The Sound of Music. The Drama Department is led by one of our alumni teachers, Mrs. Jennifer Hudson. Mrs. Hudson was featured as “Maria Rainer” in the first production at Providence, The Sound of Music. She is thrilled to be back at Providence serving as the Director of Choral and Drama Activities.
