  • Upper School Fall Play - Noises Off

    Upper School Fall Play
    Noises Off
    By Michael Frayn

    Carlson Family Theater

    Tickets $10 general admission/$5 for students

    Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
    Warning: An evening of non-stop laughter – bring a friend for support.

    On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
  • Upper School Senior Project - The Dumb Waiter

    By Harold Pinter

    Ahmanson Family Black Box Theater

    Free Admission!

    Each year, rising seniors propose projects to cap their Viewpoint theater experience. Andrew Steele, class of 2018, will direct fellow students in this play about a pair of gunmen waiting for the kill in a decayed lodging house. One of the great playwrights of the 20th century, Pinter gradually exposes the inner strains and fear of his characters, alternating hilarity and character to create an almost unbearable edge of tension.

    Celebrating its 50th anniversary, this masterpiece of American musical theater has never been more pertinent. Set in a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Classic musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “The Money Song” and “Maybe This Time.”

    Warning:
    Adult themes and language. Suggested for audiences Eighth Grade and up.
