Theatre production:

Fall show

Each fall the department produces a straight (non-musical) play production. Recent titles include The Miracle Worker, A Christmas Carol, The Glass Menagerie, Little Women, and The Diary of Anne Frank. Auditions are typically held the first week of class, with rehearsals three to four evenings a week, with four performances in October. Each production is given full technical support with scenery, lighting, costumes, and sound.

Spring show

Each spring the music and theatre departments join to present a full-scale musical production. Recent titles include Godspell, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, and The Fantastiks. Auditions are typically held mid-December, with rehearsals in the spring three to four evenings a week, with four performances in April. Each musical is given full technical support with a live orchestra, scenery, lighting, costumes, and sound.

Upcoming events

The Sound of Music:

One of the most beloved musicals of all time! In Austria, 1938, an exuberant young governess brings music and joy back to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power.
