High school stage productions for Diocese of Wilmington include wide range of choices

St. Thomas More
Students at St. Thomas More Academy in Magnolia wowed the crowds May 18-19 with "High School Musical."

Do you hear the people sing?

In the upcoming weeks, high school students across the Diocese of Wilmington will sing to their heart’s content as they take on famous roles like Wednesday Addams, Seymour Krelborn, and Jean Valjean. Every year, spring musicals are highly anticipated by cast members and audiences alike.

Whether music by rock legends like The Who and Elvis Presley peaks your interest, or if you are a self-declared connoisseur of gentle tunes that tug at the heart strings, there are shows for you. Even comedy-seekers will be accepted with open arms at many of these high schools.
