Fall Theater a Success

This fall, St. Luke’s theater department presented two successful shows. Our Upper School kicked off the season with Winter Break by Joe Calarco, and the Middle School Theater followed the next week with Appropriate Audience Behavior by Ian McWethy.

Upper School Theater Director Dawn Fuller shared: “The SLS Theater season opened with laughter, lively music, and nine spunky US actors sharing heartfelt stories about high school life. Winter Break, by Joe Calarco, was a hit with audiences. Whether dissecting the Star Wars saga, hunting for ghosts in the basement, or waiting for that first snowfall (yes, there was snow on stage!), the US Fall play brought back live theater to the Seldin Performing Arts Center. The cast and crew produced a fabulous evening of theater with glee and tears. It was a wonderful start to the 2021-22 theater season! It's so great to be back, treading the boards!”

Magistra Mahler, director of the Middle School play, said: “Middle School drama's fall production of Appropriate Audience Behavior was a huge success. After four seasons away from our indoor theater spaces, it was a real treat to be back in the Wyckoff Family Black Box Theater with a live audience — in record numbers, no less! Our cast of seven dedicated middle schoolers was able to personalize their scenes, build convincing characters through voice and gesture, and persevere through a fully-masked rehearsal and performance process. Our three fabulous technicians designed props, such as no-mess spaghetti and realistic popcorn, and more than 20 costumes that could be swapped out right in the seats. With a packed house at both performances, Appropriate Audience Behavior definitely reminded us of just how wonderful it is to watch a show together again.”
