Theatre productions also provide opportunities for students to work as crew members (e.g., lighting, sound, wardrobe, make-up, etc.) to earn elective units for TA 91 - Introduction to Tech Theatre Activity or required/elective units for TA 191 - Activity Projects in Theatre Production.

Spring 2022 Productions

The Grouch: A Modern Version of the Misanthrope Written by Molière and Rangit Bolt
Directed by Jeffrey Lo

Students must enroll in TA 117 - Sec 01. This production will be performed in front of live audiences at the Hammer Theatre Center on April 22-27.

About the Production

In this witty cutting version of Le Misanthrope Molière's angry hero Alceste become Alan - journalist, intellectual and free spirit-who finds himself adrift in a social whirl of false flattery and schmooze. In a world where nobody calls a spade a spade (or even knows what a spade is for), how can the cantankerous but high-minded Alan secure the affections of Celia - a spoiled, feckless, fickle socialite, who happens to be the love of his life?

The Grouch

Antigone, Presented by the Girls of St. Catherine's 
Written by Madhuri Shekar
Directed by Teresa Veramendi

Students must enroll in TA 117 - Sec 02. This production will be performed in front of a live audience in the Hal Todd Studio Theatre from March 24-26.

About the Production

The St. Catherine's drama club is struggling to put up its first school play—Sophocles' Antigone. As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing the classic play about impossibly difficult choices. What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?
