The Musical/Operetta

Originally called the “operetta,” the musical has taken place each year since the first students enrolled here in 1946. Present day SHA musicals are offered in the Fall, but it hasn't always been that way. Through 1989, the show featured two different casts and the curtain opened for 6 performances over the course of two weekends. The show moved to the Fall in 1989 when the annual Live and Silent Auction hit the scene as a major spring event.  Starting with the fantastic 50th Anniversary year production of Show Boat in 1995, held in fittingly dramatic fashion at the Shubert Theater in New Haven, the musical enjoys a run of 3 performances. Today, musical productions have returned to the historic Shubert Theater and are performed to sell-out crowds. The musical theater program has been recognized with awards from the Broadway High School Theatre Guild and the prestigious HALO awards.
