2019 Spring Play: Pygmalion

2019 Spring Play: PYGMALION (by Bernard Shaw)


The students of De La Salle and Carondelet created a contemporary version of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Is this dramatic work still relevant 100 years later? With a fresh set of 2019 costumes and set designs, we think so. 

About the Play - Pygmalion
Living in poverty and struggling from day to day can be very difficult. Most of us, if given the opportunity, would try to make changes to our lives and our situation. Pygmalion tells the story of a poor, young street girl who has been disrespected and overlooked because of her punk appearance and the dialect she speaks. When she overhears a bragging professor claim he could turn her into a duchess, she dares him to do so. The outcome of her training is not what she expected, and she is not only able to change her appearance and speech, but also gain confidence in her self worth.

2018 Fall Musical: Dogfight


2018 Fall Musical: DOGFIGHT (PG-13)


About the Musical 
Dogfight chronicles the last evening of six Marines before they depart to Vietnam. They host a "dogfight" which is a contest to see who can bring the "ugliest" girl. The story then unfolds as our protagonist comes to realize he has real feelings for Rose, the girl he chose to subject to this humiliation. Rose is the example of compassion and empathy that is the heart of the production.

This show asks questions about mob-mentality effects, entitled actions, standing up to friends, and surviving in a world of war and returning home. Although it is an upbeat and fun musical, there is an undertone of layered seriousness that could be mistaken if not seen with mature eyes, therefore the PG-13 rating.

Dogfight deals with sexual harassment, objectification, and abuse. Our theatre program decided to join forces with our Mentors in Violence Prevention program on campus and bring awareness to these issues, that our students face in high school and beyond. Our production is intended to spark tough conversations, not provide answers.

2018 Spring Musical: Little Shop of Horrors


Spring 2018 Musical: Little Shop of Horrors



About the Musical:
Little Shop of Horrors is a dark comedy. The action opens in Mushnik's Flower Shop, a failing store on Skid Row. The few plants in stock are, like their surroundings, rundown and fading. There, we meet Mr. Mushnik and his two employees, Audrey and the nerdish Seymour Krelborn, who secretly has a crush on his beautiful-but-much-abused co-worker. Seymour brings a strange plant to the flower shop, and business begins to bloom. Seymour's sudden success comes with a price. The plant, which he names Audrey II after his co-woker, demands to be fed human blood. Ultimately, however, Seymour’s natural goodness begins to make him think about his lifestyle and what he must do to maintain it.

Is it too late for him?

2017 Fall Production - The Outsiders


The Outsiders


 

The Outsiders tells the story of two teen groups whose poisonous rivalry stems from socioeconomic differences. They judge. They stereotype. They viciously act on an unidentified anger that is grounded in hatred and catapulted by misunderstanding. De La Salle’s theme this year is Respect for All Persons. This play is about what it means when a person does not belong to a particular group. In this play – who is the outsider?

That depends on your perspective.

Both groups demonstrate loyalty. Both groups live by a moral code. Both groups experience fear, love and sorrow. We chose this play because, really, aren’t each of us on the “outside” of something based on another person’s perspective?

As audience members we will see both of these groups of teens do horrible and compassionate things to one another. We will champion and pity. Through Ponyboy's eyes we find that the telling of the tale – the thoughtful intent of sharing our worlds – reveals that all people must come to terms with fear, love and sorrow. We don’t always do it the best way we can. We fail. We forgive. We learn. We “re-see” or respect from a new perspective.

This November S.E. Hinton’s Ponyboy shares the story of his experiences with us on the Brother Celestine Cormier Stage. We’d love to see you in the theatre!
