Fall Plays at Highlands
Preparing the Next Generation for Success
Every fall at HCA, productions like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Arsenic and Old Lace, and Little Women allow students to showcase their creative abilities and gifts. Typically smaller scale and often more off-the-wall than the HCA Spring Musical, the fall play allows the Drama Department to be extra creative, performing everything from murder mystery dinner theaters, to multiple One-Acts, to well-known old favorites.
Looking Back at Recent Fall Plays
In 2011 the Theater Department presented Little Women to an enthusiastic audience that also enjoyed a Christmas Tea. In 2012 the Drama Department was pleased to present Arsenic and Old Lace. The evening included dinner and a murder-mystery play that delighted and amused our HCA students and families. In 2013 the production was The Great High School Whodonit, and in 2014, the annual “Fall Play” was moved into December to accommodate the Christmas feel of It’s a Wonderful Life which was done in black and white! In 2015 our school families enjoyed Murder Mystery at the Murder Mystery, a play within a play within a play! In November 2016 the Theater Department presented The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with the first-ever “theater-in-the-round” at HCA, and in 2017 presented Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. In the fall of 2018, the Theater Department presented their first junior high musical, Lion King Jr., and in the fall of 2019 presented Disney’s Frozen, Jr.
