Club Mission

Formed in 2014, the Tower Fools is the lower and middle school drama club at The Heights School. Its name derives from the tower of the crest, that great strong-hold for vision and sight, and the “fool” of Shakespeare, the character whose silliness and naivety makes him least likely to be the character to impart wisdom, but to whom Shakespeare frequents some of his most deep thoughts on human experience.

Events & Topics

The Tower Fools hold auditions for each play they perform. Plays are usually at least adapted by faculty if not totally original works, and the cast is usually between 12-15 plus to student directors.
