St. Joseph High School Community Theatre presents Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella

April 19 @ 7:00 pm - April 20 @ 10:00 pm

With its 10th production, the St. Joesph High School Community Theatre presents Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. This production will take place at the Clark Center for the Performing Arts in Arroyo Grande, CA with three performances on April 19 th and 20th 2024.

The school’s theater program began in 2019 under the directorship of Amy Curti and Erinn Dougherty. Beginning with Les Misérables, the school has produced ten shows including Phantom of the Opera, High School Musical, The Little Mermaid, Evita and The Music Man to name a few. The cast consists primarily of St. Joseph High School students, but is open to community members from other schools, grades 6-12.

In 2023, Ms. Dani Payne stepped into the director’s chair with Shrek The Musical being her first show with the company. With a new director came a new venue, traveling from the SJHS gym up to The Clark Center for the Performing Arts in Arroyo Grande. While this change has brought on some logistical challenges, the opportunity to work in a larger, professional venue far outweigh the “distance from home”. Performing at the Clark Center allows the students to experience the full aspects of a theatre, complete with dressing rooms, a green room, hands-on opportunities for the tech team, and more. Additionally, it allows their audience a treat, as the school-aged performers grew to fill a larger theater than they ever have before.

All ages are welcome to see SJHS Community Theatre presents Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on April 19th and 20th, 2024 at the Clark Center for the Performing Arts in Arroyo Grande. This year a Saturday matinee will be added to the schedule. Ticket sales will be through the Clark Center Box Office.

SJHS Community Theatre is under the direction of Dani Payne, teacher and Performing Arts Director at St. Joseph High School in Santa Maria, CA. SJHS is a 9-12 Catholic learning community of students, parents and educators that delivers the highest quality college preparatory programs and inspires a strong family spirit of shared Christian values in students who seek to develop their faith, their intellect, and their ability to make a positive mark on the world in which they live.
