Fall Play

All students are invited to participate in our annual fall play--either onstage or off.

Auditions are held in September and are open to the entire school. The theatrical set is designed and built by our fall term StageCraft class, which is an elective for juniors, and the costumes are created by our fall term Costuming class, open to all grade levels. Students can also get involved with lighting design and implementation, running the sound board, props creation, stage crew and more. 

The fall 2021 play title will be announced this summer.

The Evil Queen wishes to be fairest of them all. But when she summons great magic in hopes of finding Snow White, she can suddenly look through all mirrors throughout the kingdom.  But there’s a catch...  the magic also allows everyone else’s mirrors to show them what they most wish to see. 

Adapted by Baird Kistner and Ivan Maddock, from the script “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall” by Brian D. Taylor. “Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Denver, Colorado”

17 students have been cast in this spoof of a fairy tale, recasting the usual princes and princesses--as well as the Evil Queen--in lockdown mode, able to communicate only through Magic Mirrors throughout the kingdoms. 

Seniors Jocelyn R and Hanna M will play the Evil Queen and Magic Mirror, with Julie G as Rapunzel, Meg M as Beauty, Paige S as Cinderella and Sophia I as Snow White. Senior Rafe W is making his ANC debut as Gasdumb, with Princes Dashing, Charming and Impeccable being played by Audrey S, Tara P and Rona M, respectively. Click here for the full cast list
