Performing Arts Perspectives

The Book of Names cast

When alumna Siena D’Addario graduated from GFA in 2012, her theatre journey had only just begun. After attending the NYU Tisch School of the Arts and receiving her BFA in Theatre in 2016, D’Addario started her career as a film and theatre actor and producer. She has since returned to campus for her “extra semester” playing a role in the upcoming spring musical, The Book of Names.

Peter Adams, a freshman new to the Upper School theatre, thoughtfully recounts his experience throughout this one-of-a-kind process.
