Theater

 

Presentation High School offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to get involved in performing arts, on stage and off.

Three full-scale productions are performed each year: a fall musical, a winter musical and a spring play. Students also have the opportunity to produce their own shows through the Presentation chapter of the International Thespian Society.

 

 

2019-2020 Season

Production Synopsis
Les Miserables November 2019

After 19 years as a prisoner, Jean Valjean is freed by Javert,  the officer in charge of the prison workforce. Valjean promptly breaks parole but later uses money from stolen silver to reinvent himself as a mayor and factory owner. Javert vows to bring Valjean back to prison. Eight years later, Valjean becomes the guardian of a child named Cosette after her mother's death, but Javert's relentless pursuit means that peace will be a long time coming.

Headcase
January 2020

Headcase, written my Mr Houle and composer Dave Coldren, is a musical that explores the perils of living life online as a group of high school students navigate their lives in 2019.  

Shakespeare in Love
March 2020
Based on the Oscar-winning movie, the story involves a girl who so longs to be an actor in Elizabethan theater that she pretends to be a man to get a role and meets Shakespeare, who she can never marry.  Mistaken identities, swordplay and an appearance of the Queen herself add to the mayhem.  All ends well, though.  How?  Well, it's a mystery.
