Typically two performances are staged annually, a drama or comedy production in the fall, and a musical in the spring on May Day/graduation weekend.

Helen2018 Fall Play

Adapted by Ellen McLaughlin from the play by Euripides 

Helen of Troy, the most beautiful woman in the world, isn't with Paris in Troy or with husband Menelaus in Sparta — she has been whisked away by the gods to a three-star Egyptian hotel for the duration of the war. As Helen awaits Menelaus, her isolation is interrupted by lo, who has been until recently a cow, and the goddess Athena. This comic modern adaptation of Euripides' play examines our obsession with celebrity, beauty and the myths that eclipse our realities.
