HCA has produced and performed fifteen consecutively outstanding spring musicals since 2000. Presented in March or April each year, the Drama Department produces up to four performances over the course of a weekend. Our 2012 production, High School Musical, drew in an audience of more than one thousand people. Our 2013 and 2014 performances of Willy Wonka the Musical and Beauty and the Beast brought in large, enthusiastic crowds as well.
The spring musicals have included everything from an adaptation of a literary classic, Narnia, to a recent pop culture favorite, Disney’s High School Musical. In recent years we have also presented The Music Man, The Princess and the Pea, The Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain, Cinderella, Hello Dolly, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Annie, Meet Me in St. Louis, Peter Pan, Willy Wonka, and Beauty and the Beast.
Each year, tryouts are held either at the end of the fall semester or the beginning of the spring semester. Effort is made to include every interested student in some aspect of the production, and throughout preparation there is always room for increased involvement. Students with major roles commit to several months of after-school practices. Our most recent productions have comprised a cast and crew of over seventy students, faculty, and volunteers. Through the spring musical, students cultivate their skills and talents, build relationships with peers who share their passions, and connect with students both older and younger than themselves.
