Last Years Spring Musical

 

“This is a must-see performance, a magical two and a half hours, from the Kansas farmland to Munchkin Land to the yellow brick road to wonderful land of Oz to the haunted forest to the witch’s castle then back to Oz and finally home to Kansas.  Every performer, from the tiniest Munchkin to the tallest Winkie was a treat, and the costumes, dancing and stage sets will take your breath away.  All of the behind-the-scenes crew, from the tornadoes to the light and sound technicians, were superb.  Congratulations to one and all, especially to Producer Mrs. Erin Vander Woude and Director Mrs. Maryan Vander Woude. God bless all the amazingly talented people who made this dream of a show become reality.”

Fall Play

In the fall, students in all grades have the opportunity to participate in the fall play. This year, the Fall Play “Belles on Their Toes” is a fast-paced, sharply witty, deeply moving production about how families pull together in times of crisis. Featuring the best & brightest of the Seton Stage, this is an ensemble show you don’t want to miss! Plus, come see our special celebrity actor. One weekend only – purchase your tickets at the door. There’s only three chances to see this fantastic play. Past fall plays include: Deadwood Dick or a Game of Gold, Taming of the Shrew, Cheaper by the Dozen, Belles on Their  Toes, Life with Mother Superior, Harvey, Arsenic and Old Lace, A Brief History of the Old Testament in 20 Minutes, The Mouse that Roared, A Salute to William Goldman’s Princess Bride, Amadeus, Cyrano, and last year’s Movie, Calapanta.

 

This years Fall Play, “Belles on their Toes”!

Delightful is the word for the fall play last weekend.  It was such a treat to see the synergy among the Gilbreth children.  Each of the other characters filled their roles perfectly.  There was just enough pathos to make the comic scenes even more hilarious.  Thank you, Mr. Moore, Mrs. Orr, cast, crew, and all the dedicated volunteers, with special shout-outs to the costume ladies, Mrs. Santschi and Mrs. Murphy; to Mr. Cook, who can build anything; to sophomore Sophie Zadnik, who wields a mean paintbrush, and a welcome back to alum Scott Volpert, who hasn’t lost his touch on the sound and lights.  And the Saturday evening dinner theater was a great addition.

Last years play was a movie, Calapanta!

The 2018 Fall Play wasn’t a play at all! In the Seton tradition of groundbreaking, innovative, and meaningful productions, Seton students under the direction of Matt Moore created a MOVIE! Adapted from Mr. Tim Heisler’s book “Calapanta”.

The Seton School Theatre Letter and Theatre Honors Pins Program

 
Seton School now offers Letters and Honors Pins in Theatre! This is great for your college resumée as well as a wonderful way to celebrate your participation in arts programs at our school. Students grades 9-12 are eligible for the program. All requirements must be fulfilled during your high school (9-12) years, and it is grandfathered to previous years if you are an upperclassman.
 

To earn a Letter in Theatre:

 
• The eligible student will actively participate in a meaningful way in two of Seton’s many theatrical programs: The Fall Play, the Improv Troupe, the Spring Musical and the Theatre Seminar.
• A “meaningful way” means that the student has shown a strong commitment to their role in the show… meaning, a lead, an ensemble cast member, a member of stage or tech crew, art crew, or assisting the production staff. Each applicant will be approved by the appropriate production’s adult lead to ensure they fulfilled their individual commitments (Mrs. Vander Woude for Spring Musical, Mr. Moore for Fall Play, Improv and Seminar, Mr. Mooney for Technical and Backstage).
 

To earn an Honors Pin:

 
• An Honors Pin in Theatre is earned with the successful completion of two additional theatrical productions (as described above).
• To apply, the student will follow the same method as per the Theatrical Letter.
 

To Apply:

 
• It is incumbent on the student to apply for these honors. Send an email to honors@setontheatre.com to apply. In this email, list your name, grade, productions you have been a part of at Seton and what your role was.
 
Students may apply and receive honors at any point during the school year. However, to be recognized at this year’s Theatrical and Fine Arts Awards Night on May 19th, your email will need to be sent no later than Monday, May 8.
