It is time to take a bow, as the Breen Performing Arts Center and DAYLO STEM Center have officially debuted at The Hun School of Princeton. The $9 million project transformed the western wing of the Chesebro Academic Center with eye-catching aesthetics and state-of-the-art technology. A grand opening celebration for project donors was held on September 30th.
Performing Arts at Hun
Whatever your passion, you'll find a stage for it at Hun.
From theatre to jazz bands to traditional Chinese instruments, there's no shortage of ways to perform at Hun. Our Performing Arts department encourages students to get involved, whether you're just starting out or have been playing an instrument for years.
“I was always afraid to commit to acting. Hun opened my eyes to what I want to do. This place helped me realize who I am. This is me.”

For our Performing Arts students, the whole world is a stage.
Hun students produce an average of 23 on-campus performances each year, but they’re not stopping there. They go out into the community and perform at festivals and competitions, from Communiversity in Princeton to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. They perform at coffee houses, grade schools, hospitals, and have even opened at Radio City Music Hall. We invite you to hear what they've been up to:

Communiversity is a Princeton tradition, and our students jump at the opportunity to perform for our local community.
Each year, the Upper School Performing Arts Department puts on a frighteningly fun show!
