Senior Intensive: Carrie: The Musical (Grades 9 – 12)

Director: TBA

When high school outcast Carrie White is invited to the prom by varsity athlete Tommy Ross, she thinks her dream has come true. But this evening to remember becomes a living nightmare when betrayal and humiliation sparks Carrie’s fury into a telekinetic storm that destroys everything in its path. Based on Stephen King’s novel and one of America’s most banned books, Carrie: the Musical explores bullying, feminism, and the problems that arise when confusing pity for empathy.

Senior Showcase: Cyrano Grades 7 – 12

Director: Aaron Preusse

In this classic play with contemporary themes, Cyrano is a hero that can do it all—he’s an excellent leader, duelist, wordsmith, musician. Unfortunately, he also believes his giant nose is an insurmountable obstacle in his pursuit of love, and so helps his beloved Roxane fall deeper in love with Christian through his artfully-written love letters. Will Cyrano ever tell Roxane the truth? Or will he be bound to love in secret forever? This showcase will include stage combat training for the ensemble.
