2019 Spring Muscial - The Addams Family

San Rafael High School’s production of The Addams Family musical takes zaniness and comedic entertainment to a new level in this deathly delightful musical. In the Addams household, “normal” is strange and strange is “normal.” When Wednesday Addams falls in love with a typical boy from Ohio, and both families meet each other, it turns out that “normal” and “strange” just might be interchangeable, but core family values still apply to both households. Catchy tunes and lively dancing will engage audiences.

2016 Spring Musical - Once Upon a Mattress

English

 

True love, sword fights, tales of life in the swamp, and unexpected twists turn this production based on the story of the Princess and the Pea into a lively musical comedy for all ages.

2015 Fall Play - Truth and Consequences


    “Truth and Consequences” is a combination of two short plays being presented by San Rafael High School on November 12, 13, and 14 at 7:30 and November 15th at 2:00.  The first play is based on the infamous short story by Shirley Jackson, “The Lottery,” that caused a sensation when it was published in 1948 and shows the consequences of unquestioned tradition.  The second is “Twelve Angry Jurors” by Reginald Rose and is a powerful study of a jury deliberating a death penalty case.

    Although the original play (a live television special then called “Twelve Angry Men”) was first produced in 1954, it is still relevant today because the subject is racial prejudice and the jury system.  Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has said that seeing Twelve Angry Men while she was in college influenced her decision to pursue a career in law.  She was particularly inspired by immigrant Juror 11’s monologue on his reverence for the American justice system.  

2015 Spring Musical - Bye Bye Birdie

Join us and our SRHS cast of 45 for this rollicking musical about parents and teens in the good old 1950s when wearing poodle skirts and pony tails were the fad and communication was by phones that had to be dialed since cell phones and computers hadn't been invented.

Teen idol Conrad Birdie (Elvis) has been drafted into the army; thousands of teens protest, but one lucky girl gets to kiss him goodbye on national television on the Ed Sullivan Show! Filled with fun and interesting characters, physical comedy, dancing and song, Bye Bye Birdie has something for everyone.

2014 Fall Play - A Midsummer Night's Rock and Roll Dream

 

poster midsummer.jpg

 

     This streamlined musical version of Shakespeare's popular comedy features 33 cast members, 1960's style costumes, and hits from the sixties, like "Wooly Bully."  Especially adapted for San Rafael High, this now-original work takes place in a magical forest populated by mischievous fairies who are always ready for a song or dance.  Two Athenian couples find themselves falling out of love with the right people and in love with the wrong people courtesy of a love potion; even the fairy queen falls victim to the love potion and finds herself head over heels for a very unusual being.  Meanwhile, six would-be actors meet in the forest to rehearse a play to present on the Duke's wedding day.  They are hoping for high drama; they get hijinks.  Don't miss it!

2013 Spring Musical - Crazy for You

 Crazy for You - 5.jpg

Crazy for You is a riotous, rambunctious, rip-snorting musical in which and romance and Gershwin tunes abound.  The rich son of a banking family, Bobby Child, played by Miles Allen, longs for a career on the stage (much to the chagrin of his mother). Fortunately, he’s sent to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on an unfortunate theater. There he falls in love with Polly, the only woman in town, played by Gianna Ciaccio; Polly is already hopping mad at whoever is coming to close down the theater. Time for Bobby to put on a show to save the theater and win the girl of his dreams! Not so fast! First there are impersonations, mistaken identities, unrequited love, and lots of singing and dancing. Join seniors Chris Domer, Jeremie Massaloux, Bella Breen and 17 other cast members for a fun-filled theatrical experience.

Featuring hilarious characters, original songs, and non-stop physical comedy, The Imaginary Invalid is a buoyant treat for all.
