A Midsummer Night's Dream

The CHS Theater Department is delighted to present A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a comedy written by William Shakespeare. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons and four lovers that, for a time, get their stars crossed. Adding to the fun is a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by fairies who inhabit the forest. Throw in a musical landscape punctuated by hip-hop with a dash of KPop styled dances, and you have a show that is sure to delight. (Suitable for middle school and high school students, not recommended for elementary students.)

Clackamas High School Presents

Drowsy Chaperone

Clackamas High School is delighted to present The Drowsy Chaperone as its fall musical for 2016.  The Drowsy Chaperone is the winner of five Tony Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score) and is often described as “The Perfect Broadway Musical”.  As the show begins, a man in a chair appears on stage.   He puts on his favorite recording: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical.  The recording comes to life featuring a parade of quirky and delightful characters: “two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not so bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone.”  Put this all together and you have a song and dance evening of merriment and delight. Not suggested for elementary school students.

A Piece of my Heart

Clackamas High School is honored to present A Piece of my Heart a true story of sacrifice, service, and survival. The show runs for one weekend only on March 2, 3, 4 at 7:00pm with a Sunday matinee on March 5 at 2:00pm.

This is a powerful, true drama of six young women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays each young women before, during and after her tour in the war-torn jungle and ends as each leaves a personal token at The Wall in Washington, D.C. The play features a multilingual cast, authentic Vietnamese dance, and live music throughout the show.  


A Piece of my Heart was named the "The most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation," by The Vietnam Vets Association.  The New York Times commented, "There have been a number of plays dealing with Vietnam, but none with the direct, emotional impact of Ms. Lauro's work.
