YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE BOOTH is the untold story of what happens to the actors after President Lincoln’s assassination at Ford Theatre.  The show is filled with quippy one-liners, nonstop intellectual and physical comedy, and an interesting plot line that will have audience members wanting to see it twice. 


In MEAN, Taylor wears plus-size clothing, Inam wears a hijab, and Nick doesn’t have a girlfriend.  That’s all it takes for these three teens to be singled out as victims by school bullies.  Despite what they think, they’re not alone.  Supporting them in their struggles, their teachers, parents and friends slowly show them that it’s okay, even good, to be different.  Recommended for 5th grade and up. 

EHS Fall Play The Visit is off to the International Thespian Festival

EHS Fall production of The Visit was one of Eight schools that have been honored with an invitation to perform on the main stage at the nation’s leading high school theatre festival, which is produced by the Educational Theatre Association. The invitations are based on productions that were adjudicated last fall; three more schools will be invited this spring. (Complete list of schools and shows to-date follows.)

The International Thespian Festival, (ITF) produced by the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA),celebrates student achievement in the performing arts. The 55th event, which this year takes place June 25-30 at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, brings together more than 4,000 high school drama students and their teachers for a weeklong immersion in workshops;  interaction with colleges, industry leaders, and Broadway professionals; and opportunities to be inspired by the best high school theatre in the nation.

The highly coveted invitation signals achievement of superior work in theatre according to EdTA’s Director of Educational Programs Nancy Brown. “It is a real honor,” she explains, “because we send screening teams out all across the U.S. and Canada during the school year and only 11 schools will be selected to present their shows on the main stage.  These Thespian troupes have earned a slot among those honored few.”
