The fine arts theater program at La Salle has been in existence since 1969 and now as we move forward into our sixth decade, we take great pride in how the program has evolved, bringing the finest in contemporary and classic musicals to our stage by integrating 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.
La Salle College High School to Perform Smokey Joe's Cafe
La Salle College High School is excited to announce that it will be performing the smash Broadway musical, Smokey Joe’s Café, from March 18-21, 2021. Built around the incredible songs of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller, Smokey Joe’s Café is more than a musical tribute to one of the greatest song-writing teams of the rock and roll era - it is the soundtrack for a generation who grew up in the early days of rock & roll. Woven around songs made popular by The Drifters, The Coasters, Elvis, Ben E. King and many others, Smokey Joe’s is a musical journey from “The Neighborhood;” to finding our way in the world - finding love, losing love; and ultimately coming full circle once again, back to where it all began.
Auditions will be held on Tuesday December 15, 2020 at La Salle College High School.

The Fall One Acts Festival
The Theater Program's production of "13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview" by Ian McWethy debuts Friday, October 30th at 7:00 PM. The show will be available to stream (at any start time) for 24 hours after creating a free account at Broadwayondemand.com.
When two college recruiters at a prestigious university need to fill one last spot to keep their jobs, thirteen eccentric, dimwitted and slightly-insane high school seniors are eager to come in for an interview. What seems like a simple task turns into a nightmare when the applicants turn out to be a reality TV star, a practicing vampire, an amateur magician, and others that are much, much worse. Each applicant's interview hilariously illustrates what NOT to do at a college interview.
Each year students from La Salle College High School, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Gwynedd Mercy Academy and other surrounding public schools, come together to perform numbers from various musicals where all proceeds go to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation.
