How We Schedule Rehearsals

  • We set "potential rehearsal dates" for the Production Company (see below).  All rehearsals will be scheduled on those dates.
  • After you register, you get our "Dates Survey."  This survey lists all the potential rehearsal dates during the time period of rehearsals.
  • Families fill out the Dates Survey, marking days they can and cannot make.  
  • We take that information and come up with a rehearsal schedule that honors all family's conflicts.

The summer musical is.....Stephen Sondheim's


Welcoming students with interests in any area of theatre - The Summer Musical provides all students with an opportunity to create theatre together through rehearsal, creativity, and collaboration.  Designed to be an immersive, hands-on theatre arts education program, led by a team of area arts professionals, this group of students will meet regularly to create and rehearse the summer musical as part of The Highwood Theatre's Mainstage Season of student-produced productions. 

Students will have the opportunity to work on the production at a variety of levels (including acting, directing, choreography, and staging) and will be consistently challenged and inspired to take risks, do their best, and develop as confident collaborators and creators.
