On the west side of The Commons, great windows stretched upward and looked across a paved plaza to the school's performing arts building, known as the Dionysus Theater. It had begun to rain during third period, so the view of the theater's sweeping glass and metal facade dripped and shimmered with an eerie blue-gray light..."
The Dionysus Theater is located on the Edgewater High School campus and is the main venue for the school's renowned drama program.
The high school has a long tradition of encouraging both performing and fine arts and has a vibrant drama program. Typically the school produces two stage productions every year which are performed in the Dionysus Theater to the south of the main buildings. Notable productions included Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady and Oliver!
