Performances

Performances at St. Michael’s Country Day School

At St. Michael’s, we offer many performance opportunities throughout the year, across the grade levels and in various aspects of our Arts program. Many of them are recorded and available for online viewing, and will be archived here for the community to watch on their own schedule.

Since we are not able to come together on campus as an audience, please enjoy the opportunity to see our talented students perform here!

COMING SOON!!

Happiness is… great musical theatre! With charm, wit, and heart, You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown explores life through the eyes of Charlie Brown and his friends in the Peanuts gang. They explore life’s great questions as they fly kites, struggle with homework, sing songs, swoon over their crushes, and celebrate the joy of friendship.

Directed by Mrs. Johnston and designed by Mrs. Hileman, the St. Michael’s grade 8 Drama students are delighted to offer you this heartwarming musical, coming soon!

The Day The Internet Died

On a sunny day in the town of Bloomington, a devastating occurrence happens. No, it’s not famine, or floods, or loss of your basic rights. The internet has gone down! And it will continue to be down! For a week! A whole week! Pandemonium! In a world that is so dependent on the internet for shopping, mailing, and posting pictures of cute babies, how will society function? Not well as it turns out. The Day the Internet Died hilariously explores how inept we are at socializing, research, and basic human interactions when we don’t have a screen to look at.

St. Michael’s 6/7 Drama and Mrs. Johnston are delighted to offer you this hilarious comedy – please enjoy!

2021 - The Day the Internet Died

For a little Halloween-inspired viewing:

Spooky Stories

a trio of 1940’s radio plays by Lucille Fletcher

“Sorry Wrong Number”

“The Hitchhiker”

“The Diary of Sophronia Winters”

directed by Christina Johnston

performed and recorded by the Fall 2020 8th grade Drama Class

 

We are proud to present this series of spine-tinglers, appropriate for middle school and up, just in time for Halloween.

We invite you to imagine being transported to an old-time radio studio, where you have the opportunity to watch three classic radio suspense plays being recorded. The sound effects and actors’ lines combined weave a spell and create a story, as they would have at the time when these radio dramas were popular. In this day and age when we rely on TV, the movies, and video for our images, we invite you to use your imagination instead and allow the actors voices to bring to life these three Spooky Stories.

HOLIDAY SHOWS of years past

St. Michael’s Drama and Mrs. Johnston invite you to take a look back at holiday performances past! Even though we can’t be together in the theatre this year, we still want to celebrate the joy of the season (as well as the creative talent of the St. Michael’s actors and techies). Please enjoy a tour down memory lane with these shows put on by the Acting Workshop class in years past, and have a very happy and very safe holiday!
