The Shawnee Mission School District mandates that high schools produce three shows each year. During the 2013-2014 school year, Shawnee Mission North will stage fourteen different productions. We divide our theatre schedule into three seasons; fall, winter and spring. We call the three mandated shows our "mainstages", this year they are a chilling play entitled The Haunting of Hill House in the fall, Monty Python's SPAMALOT, the musical in the winter and a fun new romantic comedy entitled Things My Mother Taught Me in the spring. Each North student with an activity ticket will receive one free ticket to each of our three mainstage shows. Tickets for the general public can be purchased at the door the evening of the show. We charge $10.00 a ticket for mainstage musicals, and $8.00 a ticket for mainstage non-musicals. Accompanying our three mainstage shows we'll also have several additional shows throughout the school year. We call these additional shows our "lab plays". Tickets for our lab plays, A.R.T. and Rep. productions are $5.00 for non-musicals, and $8.00 for musicals. We'll start the year with two nights of student written Original One Acts in the fall. In the winter we'll present The Bully Plays and two student directed lab plays; Push and Searching for Davids Heart. In the spring we'll be performing famous scenes from the writings of William Shakespeare and the lab musical Seussical, The Musical. In addition to all of these we also have highly entertaining Rep. Theatre and A.R.T. shows containing original writing, sketch comedy and improv. sprinkled in throughout the year. Make sure to check our season poster for the dates.
Everyone attending North and living in the surrounding community is invited and encouraged to attend. Curtain for the evening shows is 7 p.m., matinees begin at 2 p.m.
