Presentation High School’s performing arts events unfold on the stage of the Valenzuela Theater, a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility that seats an audience of more than 200. There’s a performance virtually every month of the year, so why not make our theater your choice for a night out?
Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
Save the Date! Performances are from Jan 19-27, 2019.
Hamlet is summoned home for his father's funeral and his mother's wedding to his uncle. In a supernatural episode, he discovers that his uncle has murdered his father. Hamlet feigns madness, murders the "prime minister," loves and then un-loves an innocent whom he drives to madness, plots and then un-plots against the uncle, directs a play within a play, successfully conspires against the lives of two well-meaning friends, and finally takes his revenge on the uncle, but only at the cost of almost every life on stage, including his own and his mother's.
