Awards Night 2017

Posted on May 14, 2017

Please join us in recognizing students for their hard work and commitment to excellence in theatre at the Theatre Department Awards Night on Friday, May 19th at 7:00 PM at the SJHS Cafetorium.

The famous hypochondriac in this classic farce not only complains of a million imaginary ills, but also of his astronomical medical bills. If he marries his daughter to a doctor, he reasons, he will have free medical care. He chooses a Latin talking numb-skull without consulting the daughter, who is already smitten by another. The inventive maid exposes the doctor and his father as charlatans and demonstrates to the master that his second wife loves his money, not him. The story proves that troubles, both real and imaginary, can be relieved by laughter.

UIL One Act Play auditions are next week

Posted on December 1, 2016

Every spring, the SHS Theatre Department prepares a play to enter in the UIL’s One Act Play District Competition, which offers students the ability to earn individual and group awards in acting and technical theatre. This year’s play, The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere, is a zany farce that uses over-the-top characters to poke fun at the medical profession and the greed of the upper class during the Rococo era.

christmas belles posterIt’s Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters – Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye – are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa Claus – played by Frankie’s long-suffering husband, Dub – is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!
