See the Season Announcement flyer for director names. Senior Theatre projects are auditioned in the Winter Quarter, so watch the Callboard for an announcement.

Register for a production course, as specified by a director, by the day after casting is posted.

Prospective stage managers should contact the director of the show or Richard Olmsted.

It's A Wonderful Life

This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast infused with a rhythmic doo-wop a la stomp kinda feel.  With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.
