Sweeney Todd is a challenging show and Stephen Sondheim is one the greatest writers in the theatre of all time --many high schools would not even attempt this show - but since our beginning in 1996 ... St. Clair High Theatre Troupe is always making an effort to challenge and stretch ourselves to grow as performers and artists ... please consider coming out and supporting our 23 year tradition of excellence in educational theatre ---- I can assure you that we are NOT your typical high school show -
I am confident you will find the quality of our production will exceed your expectations!
We have a strong track record to back it up!

UPDATES ON REHEARSAL as of Thursday 01/31 at 6:45pm

Image result for show must go on
IF NOTHING changes, it looks like we will FINALLY have a half day for 3rd and 4th hour exams on Friday

Thus rehearsal will be from 12 noon until 8ish - we have lots of lost time to make up ... please eat lunch BEFORE coming to the PAC - dinner will be provided around 5:00-5:30 for those participating in the meal plan at the PAC

We will discuss adding Saturday at rehearsal on Friday - most likely will use Saturday for some rehearsal and serious finish work on set (students involved in band festival will be excused)

Sunday is still ON - starting at 11am until 5 or 6 pm - lunch will be provided with meal plan

Monday would then be are final half day for exams - rehearsal will again be 12 noon until 8ish -- again, please eat lunch BEFORE coming to the PAC -- again dinner will be served for those participating in the meal plan

Tuesday and Wednesday BOTH will be 3:15 pm until 9 ish - possibly longer depending a number of factors - PARENTS best to wait until your student calls to be picked up, I will typically have them call 30-45 minutes prior to pick up time ..

Pre-sale tickets available online until Wednesday, February 06 at 11:59 PM -- $2.00 off each ticket

Extreme Weather and the Rehearsal Process

posted Jan 29, 2019, 4:13 PM by Mark Eberhard   [ updated Jan 29, 2019, 4:33 PM ]

We will lose our THIRD rehearsal in the last six school days due to extreme temperatures on Wednesday – there is a chance we may lose Thursday and/or Friday as well – thus our rehearsal schedule is in a state of flux!

 If we lose multiple rehearsals the end of this week and the weather finally clears on Friday ...

  • We may need to ADD a rehearsal on Saturday, February 2 from 10am-3pm
  • We will STILL hold the scheduled rehearsal on Sunday, February 3 from 11am-6 pm
  • On either Friday/Monday or Monday/Tuesday – which ever two days become our final half days for exams – we will have extended rehearsals from 12 noon – 8 or 9 pm (which is better than 10 or 11 pm)

 Please recall that at the parent meeting, the first student meeting, student auditions, and throughout the rehearsal process I have made it clear that students needed to keep the final two weeks of production free and clear or any unexpected events and changes – well this year we are pushing that to the max!

 These would not normally be my first choices, but it is the best way I can find time to make up for potentially 4-6 missed rehearsals in these final critical two weeks

 There are critical steps of development a show goes through in the final two weeks.  These steps are often slow and take time to work themselves out, every time you add something new (props, lights, costumes) a production will take few steps back before it can work forward again.   There just simply is NO quick fixes that can replace the organic process of tech weeks!
