VHHS THEATRE

WELCOME BACK! 2020-2021

Backlight is planning on producing a full schedule of productions this year. This is going to be a new experience for all of us but we look forward to you being a part of it. All students are welcome!

BIG NEWS

The musical will be moving to the spring. We are hoping to be able to perform the musical with all our students in the same room but that will not be possible to do safely this fall.

SO...

The fall season will combine Freshman & Sophomore Play and Spring Play into two audio drama performances. Ideally, both will be recorded live at VHHS.

FALL SEASON

Audition Format: Video Submissions (more details to come)
Director: Ms. Freichels & Ms. Candocia
Technical Directors: Mr. Phelan, Mrs. Phelan
Students will be rehearsing online. If approved you may also have rehearsals in school.

WHAT ABOUT CREW?

Crew will start to meet shortly after auditions. Meetings will start online. If allowed we will start to have in person meetings as well. There will be a combination of preparations for the performances, technical theatre workshops, and theatre maintenance.

VHHS Theatre featured on NPR

VHHS was set to perform Clue in front of a live audience, but when the quarantine began the rehearsals stopped. But the show must go on. With special permission from Broadway publishing, VHHS' Backlight Theatre will be presented a radio play version of Clue. This performance featured voices and music recorded from the homes of our ensemble. This was a very special recording. Due to publisher permission the perfornce was only avalible for one night.
