MUNDELEIN THEATRE strives to provide a safe, dynamic, creative atmosphere where our students can develop as theater artists and human beings. We endeavor to produce quality productions while providing a valuable educational experience for our students.



MUNDELEIN THEATRE produces three mainstage productions each year - Fall Play, Winter Play and Spring Musical.  We also produce several studio productions, including the Student Directed One-Act Plays and our New Faces Production (a no-cut production for freshman and sophomores, as well as juniors and seniors who have never appeared on the MHS mainstage).  

Additionally, we compete in Group Interpretation (IHSA event) and Chicago Shakespeare Slam, a Shakespeare slam sponsored by Chicago Shakespeare Theatre.  Opportunities exist for students in the area of acting, directing, technical theatre, design and choreography.  In addition to our productions, we also sponsor a trip each year to the Illinois High School Theatre Festival.

 

MUNDELEIN THEATRE is a co-curricular program.  We offer a one-semester general theatre studies class (Introduction to Theatre), as well as a year-long class in Technical Theatre. Our performance classes consist of Beginning Acting (one semester) and Theatre Studio - Advanced Acting (year-long).
