INFORMATION ABOUT LITTLE WOMEN AT HHS

As you undoubtedly know, events all across our state and nation are being cancelled or postponed in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.  That unfortunate reality has occurred just as we were preparing to open LITTLE WOMEN.  The cast was preparing a beautiful and touching show for you.  We are hopeful to be able to perform the show at some point, but for now we are postponing.  We apologize to our patrons.  Anyone who already purchased tickets should have or will very soon receive a full refund (including fees) for their tickets.  We hope to be able to bring you the show at a later date.  As more information becomes available and decisions are made, we will post updates here. 

 

To our wonderful patrons - we hope you are safe and healthy and with people you love.  Take good care of yourself and your community!

About theatre in Hamden....Our theatre department has been well known throughout the state and region for many years.  Beginning with great teachers and directors like Joseph Juliano and Julian Schlusberg, the department has always worked to provide students the opportunity to explore the worlds of acting and technical theatre, through classes and after-school productions.  The theatre department believes that educational theatre should be a training ground for students.  A focus on creativity, communication, empathy, safety and professionalism helps prepare students for things to come later in life, whether in theatre or other careers.  The Hamden High Mainstage Ensemble and Hamden Middle School Center Stage provide students the opportunity to put their learning into practice with a play and musical each year.
