Since 2003 Browning's Form II French students have participated in the annual Middle School theater festival at the Lycée Français de New York.. French teacher and director Dominique Bernard remarked, "The imposing arena was crowded, and the pressure was palpable, with the boys a little apprehensive but very committed. Their task was to present a short performance of five to seven minutes based on this year's theme of Attention. The quality of all the plays was outstanding.”

The Browning boys came away with three awards, the most notable being the 2017 Premiere Scène Special Jury Prize. Well supported by his talented peers, one of our boys was awarded the best non-French speaking male actor trophy. The boys also received a special award for "best pronunciation and articulation.” The large number of Browning parents who attended the festival had every reason to be proud of their sons.
