Pendleton Players is the extracurricular theatre interest group of the Pendleton Heights High School Performing Arts Department. Under the direction of Auditorium and Theatre Program Director, Jacque Brown, this extra-curricular activity provides the opportunity for students to participate in all phases of performance and or technical theatre.
The group presents three productions during the school year. The group also serves as the technical assistance for other Auditorium events including Band, Choir, School Events, and Rentals. There are numerous opportunities for the students interested in Technical Theatre to participate behind the scenes, building sets, designing and hanging lights, designing and running sound, grip, fly, house management, and stage management.
The high school also has a local troupe of the International Thespian Society which honors those students who excel in theatre work. They can earn membership through their theatre activities. More information on this group can be found by clicking on the Thespian link above.
Students interested in performing can check out those opportunities by clicking on the Audition link and those interested in behind-the-scenes work can click the Tech link.
Since we believe there is a "Stage for Every Age" , there is a group called the Pendleton Community Players which produces a summer production and is open to any member of the community, no matter how young or old. This project was originally partially funded by a grant from the South Madison Community Foundation.
The Lion King, Jr. currently scheduled for April 17, 18, 19th will have to be rescheduled due to the adjusted school closing until April 12th. At this point, due to the fluctuation and daily changes in guidelines and restrictions, both locally and nationally, we will wait to make a final decision regarding a possible cancellation until we know more. That will be a last resort. We are hopeful that we may still be able to present the show in some fashion before the end of the school year, but at this point, any plan would be premature. We will advise those who have previously purchased tickets how to proceed once a final determination is made. Thank you for supporting our program and these kids!
All Crews will be contacted if, and when activities resume. At this time, all activities are cancelled through April 12th. We will update the website as developments evolve.
