Bad Auditions By Bad Actors, Steel Magnolias, Senior Scenes XXIII, Curtains!
The Strawberry Hill Players are the drama club at Stamford High School. We are composed of very talented actors, singers, dancers and all around wonderful people (if we do say so ourselves)! Our club includes two parts: first, the theater sector, in which performers, our costume crew and tech troupe put on plays and musicals for the community to enjoy. Second, we have SHIP, the Strawberry Hill Improv Players, who bring hilarious improv comedy to life in their productions! Each year we have productions that include a fall play, senior scenes, Knight of Cabaret, and a spring musical. We have won awards at the Connecticut HALO competition in past years, including: 2019 Best Performance by a Cast in an Ensemble Play for Noises Off; Best Comedic Female Performance in a Musical and Best Contemporary Musical for the Addams Family; 2020 Best Contemporary Play and Best Scenic Design for Elephants Graveyard; 2021 Best Male Standout in an Ensemble Play for Our Place. We have also competed at CDA, The Connecticut Drama Association, in past years as well, where we bring compete a 45 minute play against other schools.
Our Spring Musical!
(Tickets Available for purchase under “Tickets” tab)
It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of “Robbin’ Hood: A New Musical”. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan! Packed with glorious tunes and a witty, charming script filled with delightful characters, CURTAINS is a hilarious journey for both performers and the audience. The Broadway production garnered 8 nominations at the 2007 Tony Awards® including Best Musical.
