Upcoming Performances

Seventh & Eighth Grade Play

Middle Class, Too
By Brad C. Slaight
Friday and Saturday, November 6 and 7, 2020, 7:00 p.m.
Carlson Family Theater

In Middle Class, Too we find students making the transition from childhood as they navigate that uncertain passage into becoming adults. Through scenes and monologues we hear their voices, feel their emotions, and observe their interactions. We also see that young people of pre-teen and early teen years are incredibly resilient. Over the course of the school year, the students at this middle school will add one more year of growth to their lives not just academically, but emotionally and socially as well.

Upper School Play


Wilde Ride: An Evening of Trivial Comedy for Serious People featuring The Importance of Being Earnest In a Pandemic and other trifles by Oscar Wilde
Friday and Saturday, November 20 & 21, 2020, 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 22, 2:00 p.m.


Is farce possible in the face of a pandemic? England’s original literary agent provocateur, Oscar Wilde, would most assuredly endorse it. Join us for an evening of fun, farce, wit, and wisdom featuring Dan Zolidis’ virtual adaptation of perhaps the greatest comedy in the English language, The Importance of Being Earnest. Now Jack and Algernon must vie for the hands of Gwendolen and Cecily despite not only the strictures of polite society, but the obstacles of social distancing and the vagaries of the internet! One’s false identities are especially difficult to manage when one must remember to changes one’s display name on video chat, and fearsome Lady Bracknell’s dinner invitations are an even more tedious prospect if small talk must be shouted from six feet away. This evening of trivial comedy will include other Oscar Wilde trifles performed by our Zoomsemble. If you are serious about comedy, it should be a Wilde Ride!

Upper School Musical

The Theory of Relativity 
Music and Lyrics by Neil Bartram    
Book by Brian Hill
Friday and Saturday, April 23 and 24, 2021, 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 25, 2021, 2:00 p.m.
Carlson Family Theater

Take a Physics manual, blend it with the sound of The Book of Mormon, the hilariously nerdy references of The Big Bang Theory, a sprinkle of Chicago, a few drops of Glee, bake it in a Broadway bowl, use all the originality you can have, and that is the successful recipe for this moving and unconventional song cycle from Drama Desk Award nominees Neil Bartram and Brian Hill (The Story of My Life). Based on true stories and experiences of college students, The Theory of Relativity is a joyous and moving look at our surprisingly interconnected lives, through a seemingly unrelated collection of songs, scenes and monologues. The Theory of Relativity introduces a compelling array of characters experiencing the joys and heartbreaks, the liaisons and losses, the inevitability and wonders of the human connection.
 

Middle School Musical

Annie
Book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next -to- nothing start in 1930's New York City.  She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! Ultimately Annie finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, and his personal secretary, Grace Farrell.

This beloved musical features some of the greatest musical theater hits ever written, including "It's The Hard-Knock Life", "You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile" and "Tomorrow."
