Chappell Players Theatre Group produces FOUR mainstage shows each year. With a 9 month school year consisting of many breaks, holidays, etc., you can imagine how fast paced our shows are! Each show process is roughly a month, give or take, from the first day of auditions to strike. We fit a lot into one month and because of the hardworking nature of our members, we are able to continue with a four show season!
The fun begins with the musical! Auditions are typically the first week of classes and the show takes place mid-october. The musical runs for 7 shows over 2 weekends and past productions include RENT, Godspell, Grease, and Hairspray!
Cabaret for charity
The annual Cabaret for Charity started in 1999 and all proceeds benefit St. John's Bread and Life. This is a student driven show in collaboration with our sister organization, Alpha Psi Omega, and holds auditions the week after the musical strikes. It performs for one weekend in mid-November. Past Cabarets include CabaDisney, CabaNoir, CabaRadio, and CabaLove.
We start off the Spring semester by holding auditions for the straight play the first week of classes. This is a great opportunity for newcomers to join our group and for non singers to showcase their talents. The straight play performs for one weekend in mid-February. Past plays include The Library, How I Learned To Drive, and The Dinner Party.
Our last show of the season is the Children's Show. Auditions take place in February and the performs in mid-March. This show is typically a kid friendly show because 5 of our 7 performances are strictly for local schools. The other two performance are open to the public. Past shows include The Wizard Of Oz and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
