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).

Becoming Juliet

by Dean Dyer Directed by Jeff Harding

November 9, 10 & 11 at 7:30 p.m. November 10 at 3:45 p.m.

JJ Baker has never had the chance to play a leading role. Star actress Madison Engers has always been in the limelight, until JJ wins the role of Juliet in the famous Shakespeare play. Her hopes for stardom may be in danger though after Romeo literally breaks his leg. JJ and her director know the talented rebel Dylan would make the perfect Romeo, if they could only convince him he’s actor material! Rivalries and romance make this behind-the scenes high school comedy a must-see!

Becoming Juliet is our New Faces production, which will feature our youngest MHS theatre artists.
