    The New Theatre Season Begins!    

Statesmen Theatre 2023-24 Season placard.jpg

It's official - the 2023-24 Statesmen Theatre season has dropped! A powerful drama in the fall, our original one-act festival/VHSL play in the winter, and a fun and upbeat musical for the spring. Mr. DeLeo explained his choices for this his final year: "The Laramie Project is a docudrama about the 1998 murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard in Wyoming; with all of the erasure going on with LBGTQ rights lately, I felt I wanted to do something to recognize all of these students who I have taught over the years. I've never done a play in this documentary ensemble style, and it aligns very well with theories & styles that we study in IB Theatre. (Winter One-acts are yet to be announced.)  And when you do something heavy in the fall, it's smart to balance the year with something fun & joyous in the spring. Having done obscure musicals for 3 years in a row, I wanted to go out with a popular choice that the kids actually knew.  And the response to Legally Blonde has been incredibly positive. I'm very excited about the season!" Stay tuned for more details!
