SHS DRAMA'S 2023-2024 Season will be fun, ambitious, and as always challenging! We begin with Nikolai Gogol's THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR hilariously adapted by contemporary playwright Jeffrey Hatcher. This political farce centers on a provincial Russian town rife with corruption, mismanagement, and outright avarice. What will happen when the Czar's representative, the feared "government inspector" rolls into town?!
Next up we follow the famed son of the infamous Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne in Stephen Schwartz coming-of-age musical PIPPIN. We follow Pippin from his late adolescence as he seeks to find his place in the world, guided by the wily and witty “Leading Player” who shows him the ropes and pushes him from one adventure to the next.
In early March SHS Drama will be producing a smaller production (new to our production calendar) of one of the greatest, wittiest, and most hilarious plays ever written. THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST features unforgettable characters and biting social satire
Our final production of the year, LEGALLY BLONDE, is a buoyant, frothy, silly, and hilarious musical adaptation of the 2001 film of the same name. Elle Woods wants to marry her college beau more than ANYTHING in the world…or so she thinks. When Elle is jilted by him just after their college graduation, she hatches a plan to follow him to Harvard Law School and win him back. What she finds once enrolled at Harvard is a yearning for something much more than love, marriage, and coupling might offer.
