Musical Theatre

The spring musical is an opportunity to showcase acting and music talents through popular musicals. Students are able to perform through singing or acting or by playing in the band for the show. Behind the scenes, the crew takes charge of the lights, sound and sets. Past productions include You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown; The Fantasticks; Fame; Annie; Grease; The Wedding Singer; and Hairspray. All students who audition will be cast in some way, and all students from middle and upper school are welcome.

The spring 2019 musical, Bye Bye Birdie, will be performed:

February 14-16, 2019
7:00 PM
Bishop Henton Chapel
tickets: $10 adults; $5 students
Synopsis:  A loving send-up of the early 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, BYE BYE BIRDIE remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for teens, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE continues to thrill audiences around the world.
