Each year in March THS presents a school musical. Recent productions have been Damn Yankees, Back to the 80's, Into the Woods, My Fair Lady, and Guys and Dolls.
Mrs. Micari and Mrs. Kirwin are the directors of the musical.
In November, students audition with provided materials in both vocal performance and script reading. Shortly afterwards, the cast is announced. No student is ever excluded from a school musical.
Rehearsals begin in January. Students are expected to attend each rehearsal. A calendar of rehearsal dates, times, and purpose is provided to each student. Parents and students are requested to sign a contract that they are aware of their student's obligation. Students rehearse for approximately six weeks in the auditorium. In the past few years, rehearsals have been held Monday through Thursdays with no weekend rehearsal times needed.
Besides onstage talent, many students are needed for backstage crew, orchestra, painting, carpentry, programs, makeup, tickets, hairdressing, and costuming.
Students who are interested in working on the technical aspects of stagecraft such as lighting and soundboards are encouraged to join ATS.
The school musical is an intense experience! It will be a highlight of your THS experience. We are always thrilled when new students join us. Announcements will be made when audition materials are available late in the fall.
