La Salle College High School AnnouncesTheatre Schedule for the 2015 / 2016 School Year
2016 Spring Musical - Crazy for You
La Salle College High School will perform the 3 time Tony Award Winning Best Musical, Crazy for You, March 17 – 20, 2016. Based upon the 1930’s Girl Crazy, the show is built upon a compilation of some of the greatest songs ever penned by the incomparable George and Ira Gershwin. Crazy for You takes audiences on a musical journey from the theaters of New York to the Saloons of Dead Rock Nevada, as Bobby Child heads west to show his mother that he can succeed in her world of high finance, but all the while never giving up on his dream of one day becoming a Broadway star.
With such classics as Embraceable You, They Can’t Take That Away from Me, and I Got Rhythm, Crazy for You strings together both the memorable ballads from the Great American Song Book, along with the high energy and creative dance numbers from the period.
In addition to Best Musical for 1992, Crazy for You also garnered the award for Best Choreography (Susan Stroman) as well as 6 additional nominations including Best Book (Ken Ludwig), and Lead Actor and Lead Actress in a musical.

Auditions will be held in early December. Please check www.lschs.org/theater for more details and updates.
Fall 2015: Student Directed “One Acts”
This fall La Salle will turn the director’s chair over to the students through a series of student directed one act productions. Productions may be legitimate one act plays; student written works; an episode of a TV show; or any other production that would fit the definition of a “one act” play. Students will work in a supervised environment where guidance, coaching, and critiques of the work throughout the process will be provided, but ultimately all production responsibilities from casting to costuming, and set through lighting design will reside with the students. This is a very exciting undertaking and one in which we invite the girls from outside La Salle to participate – provided that members of the production team and cast are La Salle College High School students. A “Production Meeting” will be held in September to solicit student interest and proposals, and performances be held the weekend of October 23, 2015. Continue to check our web site at www.lschs.org/theatre for updates and proposal application materials.
About the La Salle College High School Theatre Program
The theatre program at La Salle has been in existence since 1969 and now almost forty-five years later, integrates the talents of well over 100 students each year including female performers from our sister schools, Gwynedd Mercy Academy and Mount Saint Joseph's Academy, as well as a variety of other surrounding schools, both public and private.
The overall goal of the program is to produce the highest quality shows while allowing everyone who expresses an interest to find their niche in the school's performing arts program. To accomplish this we produce two shows per year, starting with a comedy or drama in the fall and a full scale musical in the spring. The theatre program also provides an opportunity for students to develop and express theirs talents not only as on stage performers, but also as musicians, technical support, and in administrative capacities.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming productions.
