PHS Musical Theatre Class Production 2021

The PHS Musical Theatre Class presents I LOVE YOU BECAUSE School Edition in Concert on Thursday, May 27 at 7:30 PM and Friday, May 28 at 7:30 PM. I LOVE YOU BECAUSE is a modern twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, set in New York City. A young, uptight greeting card writer’s life is changed when he meets a flighty photographer. Along with their eccentric friends and siblings, they learn to love each other not in spite of their faults, but because of them. The show will stream on Booktix Live and Stream Passes are free of charge but must be reserved ahead of time via https://phsnj.booktix.com

About the PHS Drama Program

Whether a student dreams of starring in a show, leading the technical team, or helping manage a theatrical production, the PHS Drama department has a long legacy of introducing students to theatre in a way that builds confidence on and off stage. From Drama I classes to the Advanced Acting and Performance Seminar, students explore all aspects of theatre through hands-on experiences. 

PHS students perform Love's Labour Lost

Drama classes are offered during the day so that students are able to participate in theatre productions while also being a member of an athletic team or other after-school organization. Courses offer students a creative outlet while also introducing them to the principles and techniques of playwriting, including plot structure, dramatic action, point of view, mood, character development, setting, written dialogue, and stage directions. In addition to acting courses, PHS also offers a course on Musical Theatre that explores song and dance and provides students with practical steps to pursuing a career. 

Our theatre facilities include the 700+ seat Trego-Biancosino Auditorium and a black box theatre. A full student orchestra accompanies the annual spring musical.
