The annual SSFS Community Play is a rich opportunity for students, parents, faculty, staff, alums, trustees, and others who are closely tied to the school community to enjoy working together to produce a play or musical. The Community Play is recognized as a signature extra curricular program; it delivers a quality theatre experience that is both entertaining and educational for both participants and audience. A wide range of plays and musicals are selected from year to year based on their educational value and relevance to the school’s mission statement, Quaker values, and curriculum.
Community Play Schedule: The Community Play is announced in September. Auditions and crew sign-ups take place in November. Rehearsals are typically on weekends January – February. Performances occur the last weekend in February sometimes into early March (Thursday, Friday, Saturday @ 7:00 pm in the SSFS Performing Arts Center Theater, and, for shows with a large cast, a Sunday matinee performance at 2:00 pm).
