Theatre Arts are a huge part of the Holy Innocents’ experience, from Primary School all the way through Upper School.
All kindergartners participate in the annual Nativity play. Lower School boasts a dedicated full-time theatre class enjoyed by every first through fifth grader. The entire school community looks forward to the annual large and lively fifth-grade musical.
All students continue to take theatre as part of the Middle School curriculum during the day, where they explore solo and duo performance. Theatre is offered as a year-long elective in the Upper school with courses like One Act Plays and Theatre Production and Technique.
Powerful, high-quality after-school plays are offered for the more serious thespian, including a large Middle School/Upper School musical, a Middle School play, and a Spring Upper School production.
Typically tickets are sold two weeks prior to the production run. Exact time and Box Office locations are publicized on the HIES Fine Arts Alliance web page three weeks before opening night. Adult tickets are $10 each; student admission is $5. If you have paid your Balanced Excellence dues, you are entitled to one free ticket per family member for one performance.
Seating is numbered in the Fine Arts auditorium to provide a more professional environment. You may select your seats at the time of purchase. Any seats at will call will be held until five minutes before showtime when the waiting list will be allowed to claim seats.
The doors will open at 6:45 p.m. on each evening of the performance. Showtimes are at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
