PHS Winter Drama:

Spectacle Theatre proudly presents

the Drama Seminar class

in our production of Fire Exit

 

Everybody at Westfield High School thinks they know what happened on the day of the fire.  Fire Exit opens in the aftermath, as the community faces what appears to be a prank gone terribly wrong.  But as the kids and adults open up about their lives and the bigger picture of the day’s events emerges, the truth proves to be far less simple.  Told through a series of poignant and often very funny monologues, Fire Exit is a powerful ensemble piece that proves things, and people, aren’t always as they seem.

The show airs on Friday, January 29, 2021, at 7:30 PM, and on Saturday, January 30, 2021, at 7:30 PM.  Both performances feature different casting.  The event is free to view and is being broadcast on Broadway On Demand. Preregistration is not required for this service.  Please go here at show time on January 29th and 30th and search “Princeton High School.”  You will then be able to view the performance when it begins at 7:30 PM.

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.
