In October 2019, the School dedi- cated its newest addition to the Paul Mellon Arts Center complex – Ann and George Colony Hall. The new facility includes a 50,000 square-foot auditorium designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and is home to the School’s mu- sic and dance programs.

Love is love, in all its beauty and chaos, in this classic Shakespearean comedy, performed by students of Choate Rosemary Hall. Despite oppositional forces of the patriarchy of Athenian law, marital squabbles between fairy royalty, and even the interference
of misguided magical potions, true love prevails. Directed by Tracy Ginder-Delventhal.
