Theater

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.

Overview

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.

Spring Musical

La Salle College High School Announces Theater Schedule for the 2018 / 2019 School Year

2019 Spring Musical - Chicago-High School Edition

La Salle College High School performed the high school adaptation of the the six-time Tony Award winning musical, Chicago - High School Edition, from Thursday, March 14 – Sunday, March 17, 2019.

Chicago (High school Version) is an American musical with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. In razzle-dazzle, roaring twenties, Chicago is a tale of the sensational murderess Velma Kelly, the reigning queen of the Cook County jail, and Roxie Hart, the newest of the merry murderesses, who, of course, haven't really committed any crime (their men had it coming). They are both headline hunters seeking to capitalize on pre-trial publicity for the sake of acquittal and stage careers. The story is told through a succession of vaudeville acts: Roxie's pre-trial prison career, the trial itself in which she is defended by the slickest lawyer in town, Billy Flynn, and her acquittal and return to obscurity. Chicago is a story of murder, greed, corruption, and treachery-all those things we hold near and dear to our heart. It is jurisprudence-as-showbusiness and trial-by-publicity.

The original Broadway production opened in 1975 and ran for 936 performances until 1977. Bob Fosse choreographed the original production, and his style is strongly identified with the show. Despite mixed reviews for the original production, the show was revived in 1996 to rave reviews, and now holds the record as the longest running American Musical on Broadway (2nd only to Phantom of the Opera), and the longest running revival in the history of Broadway.

Fall Drama/Comedy

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.
