    Radium Girls Graphic

    In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie was an International celebrity, and luminous watches were the latest rage, until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. 

    Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

    Tickets for Radium Girls go on sale July 1, 2021 at www.cbusarts.com and performaces are both in person at the McCoy Center for the Arts or you may purchase a virtual ticket for any performance.

    NA Theatre believes that the dramatic arts are an essential academic subject that help prepare students for college and career readiness. The theatre program functions as a core curricular area and produces well-rounded and civically-engaged theatrical artists. Every student has the opportunity to participate in a meaningful theatrical experience that cultivates the aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of the child. 

    The arts, specifically theatre, teach students invaluable 21st-century skills like: 

    • Agility and adaptability
    • Collaboration across networks
    • Critical thinking and problem solving
    • Curiosity and imagination

    These skills will enable them to thrive not only in their chosen profession but, most importantly, in life. 

    NA Theatre cultivates four artistic processes that are the way the brain and body make art and define the link between art-making and the learner. 

    1. Creating: Conceiving and developing new artistic ideas and work. 
    2. Performing: Realizing artistic ideas and work through interpretation and presentation.
    3. Responding: Understanding and evaluating how the arts convey meaning.
    4. Connecting: Relating artistic ideas and work with personal meaning and external context. 

    These processes are rigorously honed through the NA Theatre's productions and its curriculum, beginning with Introduction to Drama and Stagecraft. The curriculum continues with Acting the Method and is followed by Honors Actor's Studio. It concludes with Introduction to the Theatre - KC, which is a collegiate level course taught through Kenyon College's KAP program. More information about each of these classes can be found on their individual pages.
