The SHS Theatre Department features a sequential curriculum that allows students to investigate the social and historical context in which they live, form aesthetic judgments, and develop the discipline of the artist. The ultimate goal is to promote appreciation of the art, as well as a more sensitive and reflective understanding of the human condition.

A Midsummer Night's Dream - A Radically Inclusive Shakespeare Comedy
You’re invited to a Royal Wedding!
Duchess Theseus’s marriage to Hippolyta is only four days away, and the guests are arriving at the Prince Royale Resort to ready for the wedding of the century. Join us for this classic Shakespeare comedy of order and disorder reimagined at a tropical resort. Witness wedding guests, Hermia and Lysander, eloping through the woods, followed closely by Demetrius and Helena.
