Peter and the Starcatcher, Knight of Cabaret, Senior Scenes XXV, Mamma Mia!
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; 2022 Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical; Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical for Curtains; The Fearless Award for The Prom; and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for The Prom. 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 soon!)
In the Spring, we will be presenting the musical Mamma Mia! Mamma Mia centers around a girl named Sophie who is searching for her true father to walk her down the aisle at her wedding. She invites three of her mother’s ex-boyfriends who may be her real father behind her mom’s back. Hijinks ensue as old friends and new lovers interact and Sophie learns the true meaning of family. This hilarious comedy is filled with amazing music from ABBA. You will laugh and cry throughout the entire show and have the night of your life! This high-energy musical displays the importance of love and family and The Strawberry Hill Players are so incredibly grateful to be able to perform it.
