The theater program at La Salle has been in existence since 1969 and now as we prepare to celebrate our fiftieth production, we take great pride in how the program has evolved to where it integrates the talents of well over 125 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 theater 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.

La Salle College High School Announces Theater Schedule for the 2017 / 2018 School Year
2018 Spring Musical - The Drowsy Chaperone
Back by popular demand, La Salle College High School will be performing the outrageously funny and incredibly creative five time Tony Award Winning Musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, from Thursday March 22, 2018 through Sunday March 25, 2018. La Salle first performed The Drowsy Chaperone in 2011 on the heels of its successful Broadway run, garnering an overwhelmingly positive audience response which supported our moving the direction of La Salle’s theater program to where we are today. Since that time, the show has grown immensely in popularity, but still remains one of the hallmarks of creative musical comedy genius.
The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical with book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. It is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theatre fan; as he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, the show comes to life onstage as he wryly comments on the music, story, and actors.
Open Casting Girls Auditions will be held on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 beginning at 3:30 PM in the auditorium.
La Salle Boys Auditions will, be held on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 beginning at 3:30 PM in the auditorium.

La Salle College High School will perform the outrageously funny Tony and Drama Desk Award winning musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, from March 22 – 25, 2018. The Drowsy Chaperone is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920's. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theater fan; as he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, the show comes to life onstage as he wryly comments on the music, story, and actors.
The show originated in 1997, when Don McKellar, Lisa Lambert, and Greg Morrison and several friends created a spoof of old musicals for the stag party of Bob Martin and Janet van de Graff.
The spoof was so well received that the team decided to "re-shape" the show for The Toronto Fringe Festival, where with the assistance of Bob Martin the character of "the man in the chair" was added to serve as a narrator and commentator for the piece. Ironically Bob Martin was cast into the role; it swept the festival; and became a huge success first in small Toronto theater, then in legitimate theater, and in 2006 backers came together to bring the show to Broadway. Winner of six Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, including Best musical, the show ran for 674 performances on Broadway before being transported to London's West end for an equally successful run.

The Fall One Acts Festival
This fall La Salle will once again 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. Performances be held on Friday October 20 and Saturday October 21 at 7:30PM.
