The St. Mary's Theatre Company is a tight knit community where you're sure to shine either on or offstage, and create friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. We offer our students unique opportunities every school year to either perform on stage, or work behind the scenes. Our company gives students not only the ability to share their talents with the entire school community, but also the capacity to create and build upon lifelong teamwork and public speaking skills.
In the fall/winter season, the Theatre Company participates in the Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild's High School Drama Festival, a competition in which high schools all across the state compete against one another for a chance to go to the State Finals. There are three rounds of competition, and over one hundred schools participating. Each school is required to stage a forty-minute, one-act show at a host site in Massachusetts with seven other high schools. The day of competition is not only a culmination of months of hard work, but a celebration of theatre, and a way to forge connections with fellow thespians from all over the state. In recent years, our Theatre Company has performed The Brothers' Menaechmi, The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon, The Audition, First Person Shooter, and The Last Nickel which moved on to semifinals.
This year, the Theatre Company has held Coffee Houses on campus every month. Coffee House is a student led open mic event where theatre members and others alike perform their favorite play acts, musical pieces, dances, poems and their own original pieces. All are welcome to attend, observe or even perform themselves! This event is a great way to express your emotions and talent in a comfortable setting with friends and family.
February 5 and 7, 2022 St. Mary's Theatre Company performed Alice in Wonderland, a beloved classic piece at the Black Box Theatre in Lynn. Both shows were sold out and the cast and crew did not disappoint.
In the spring season, the St. Mary's Theatre Company also puts on a full-length musical, an opportunity for those interested in singing to have their turn under the lights! Some of our recent productions have been Bye Bye Birdie, The Wizard of Oz, Seussical, Nunsense, and Beauty and the Beast.
