The mission of SHS is to provide a fun and safe extra-curricular experience for the students. We will allow students the chance to discover and enhance their talents and incorporate their skills whether it be performing onstage, backstage, or giving their creative input on portraying their given character.

Attendance at all required rehearsals is very important to the success of the show. Therefore, each performer is permitted up to three excused absences, with parent note. More than three excused absences could lead to part being re-assigned.
Absences will be excused for the following: illness/injury from school, vacation, family emergency, extracurricular performances/games/matches and doctor’s appointments. Students involved in other extra-curricular activities are expected to split practice times per SHS rules.
Students missing practice for any reason should provide a note to one of the directors before their absence, stating the reason and the date/time. If you do not give us a note in advance, we will be calling home to find you!
All Dress rehearsals are MANDATORY for the entire cast and crew, for the week of March 4th through 7th. Please remember this is a team effort. The success of the show is dependent on every person’s participation.
