There are generally two main Dillingham Hall stage co-curricular productions every year, depending upon the theatre season. Academy and Middle School productions audition two to three months before a show opens, and any student (of each particular school) can audition, if their after school schedules permit.
Special events include Senior Variety Show, Drama Workshop productions and several chapel dramatic presentations.
Drama Workshop productions are curricular Academy shows produced in an intimate theater that seats 60 people. An Academy student can be in a Drama Workshop production by enrolling in the Theatre Performance class, or by producing a show on their own, through the Independent Study Program of the Theatre Department. Every year (depending on enrollment) the Theatre Performance class produces between one and three full-length plays or musicals.
Shrek The Musical Jr.
November 15 – 16, 2019
The public is invited to performances of “Shrek The Musical JR.” on Friday, Nov. 15, and Saturday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m., in Dillingham Hall.
Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in “Shrek The Musical JR.”, based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
