    Don't miss our upcoming production of Mamma Mia!, February 29-March 2 @ 7pm! Tickets are $15 on GoFan.

    ABBA's hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship, creating an unforgettable show and a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!


Bite-Sized Theatre IV: Theatre Strikes Back!

  • Our student written/directed play festival returns this year as Bite-Sized Theatre IV: Theatre Strikes Back on March 21-22! If you are interested in submitting a play, you can email your script to Mr. Work by Monday, January 8th.

    Guidelines

    • Your play should be roughly 5-10 minutes long.
    • Include the name of the director, if different from the writer.
    • Published 10-minute plays may be performed, but you must speak with Mr. Work to obtain licensing (published plays cost money.)
    • Content must be school appropriate. Any content or language that may be considered controversial must be approved by an administrator.
    • Although dramas are allowed, the tone of Bite-Sized Theatre is usually comedic.
    • Writers & directors will cast their own plays.
    • You will need to rehearse on your own time and in your own locations. You will have three days of tech in the theater on 3/18-3/20 from 2:30pm-6:00pm. It is your responsibility to make sure your play is memorized, rehearsed, and fully prepared before tech week.
    • If your play is not prepared and ready to go by the final tech rehearsal, it may be cut from the show.
    • You are responsible for your own props, costumes, and sets.
