Spring Musicals at Highlands
Preparing the Next Generation for Success
Highlands has produced and performed sixteen 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.
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 Anne of Green Gables, 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, Beauty and the Beast, Music Man, Anne of Green Gables Musical, Little Mermaid, The Sound of Music, and Little Women.
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.
