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).

Winter Play

 

LOVE/SICK

by John Cariani

This is a collection of ten slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays by John Cariani (Almost, Maine). This 90-minute romp explores the pain and joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, LOVE/SICK is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.
 
Streaming the weekend of February 26-28.
 
Stay tuned for further details.

The Further Adventure of Nick Danger – Third Eye

by Firesign Theatre

 
Danger is Firesign’s take on the hard-boiled detective character, with first-person narration and crazy adventures that often involve mistaken identity, and of course there’s always a dangerous dame. A spoof of the old detective radio shows, right down to the special effects, the sponsors, the on-air host, the convoluted plots and just about anything else one might have heard on a classic serial.
 
This year the competition will be virtual, with the Sectional Competition being held on March 20.
