Theatre Arts

Assumption High School’s Rose Theatre Company is open to all students who enjoy drama.

The company produces two shows annually. Students are selected through an audition process that takes place approximately six to ten weeks prior to the production. The company gives students an opportunity to develop their acting talent and/or technical skill through the rehearsal process. Performances give the students an opportunity to share their mastered skill with the community. Assumption students also particpate in the technical compents of a production with student led crews for lighting, sound, costumes, hair and make-up, publicity, set design, props, and more.

The modern Humana Foundation Performing and Fine Arts Center features a 295-seat theatre with a thrust stage and art gallery space.

Much Ado About Nothing

A story of courtship and laughter, Much Ado about Nothing centers on two couples. The relationship between the young Hero and her suitor Claudio drives the plot, but it is Hero’s cousin Beatrice and her war of words with the witty soldier Benedick which which will steal the audience’s hearts. The play begins with the soldiers’ return from war. By setting Shakespeare’s classic comedy in post-WWI Britain, Rose Theatre hopes to immerse audiences in an age of upstairs-downstairs drama, suffragists, and scandal.

*This show contains mature themes not intended for all audiences.
