As an educational theatre program, our goal is to provide a variety of theatrical learning experiences—both in performance and technical production—through a breadth of dramatic styles. To this end, the genre, size, and structure vary by production. While we strive to build our program by increasing its numbers, we also work to build the program by improving the quality of the learning experience, as a whole.

Chicago: Teen Edition Nov. 11-13 and 18-20
Kander and Ebb’s Chicago is a scathing social commentary on our national obsession with violence and fame. Based on the 1926 play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, the musical follows Roxie Hart, whose crime of passion lands her on Merry Murderesses Row, sharing the spotlight with vaudeville icon and fellow felon Velma Kelly. To keep their names in the headlines and themselves off death row, Roxie and Velma rely on lawyer Billy Flynn to “razzle dazzle” the jury and the press core. Please note that Chicago: Teen Edition represents adult situations and is not appropriate for a young audience.
Performances are Nov. 11, 12, 18, and 19 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 13 and 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for students and senior citizens, and free with student ID for all SLPHS students. Please purchase tickets at https://gopark.hometownticketing.com/embed/all. No cash will be accepted at the venue.
