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).

The Miracle Worker

By William Gibson

Directed by Jonathan Meier & Jeff Harding

February 2, 3 & 4 at 7:30 pm
February 3 at 3:45 pm
Understudy Performance – February 4 at 2 pm

This Tony Award-winning play is the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, Helen Keller, who lost her sight and hearing at the age of 19 months. With compassion, humor and dramatic tension, The Miracle Worker explores the volatile relationship between a lonely teacher and her headstrong charge.

The Miracle Worker is a play that Gibson adapted from his 1957 Playhouse 90 teleplay of the same name, which starred Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke. It was based on Helen Keller's 1903 autobiography The Story of My Life.
