Marcella Park

“Company” will be the fall musical and “As You Like It” will be the winter play next year.

“Company,” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by George Furth, will be directed by performing arts teachers Michele Spears and Ted Walch. Spears will choreograph the musical.

“As You Like It,” a play by William Shakespeare, will be directed by performing arts teacher Christopher Moore. English teacher Jocelyn Medawar will work on the production as a dramaturge.

Audition information for both productions will become available online in mid-July, Moore said.

Other main-stage theater events for the school year will include the Playwrights Festival and performances by the Scene Monkeys and the Jackanapes.
