PHS Theatre Presents: “Crucible”

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
Produced at Memorial Auditorium by PHS Theatre under the direction of Greg Shaw, Oct. 18, 20, and 21. Tickets: $6 general admission balcony and $8 reserved seating on the main floor.

PHS Theatre will bring to life the tale of the insular, Puritan community of 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, where a group of young girls are found dancing in the woods and immediately fall ill. When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens of Salem suspect that some more sinister force may be at hand.

As long-held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed and disseminated, and the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry, the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil becomes more dangerous than the evil itself.

​When the burden of proof is invisible and the crime too terrible to name, everyone becomes a suspect and no one is safe. The Crucible, Arthur Miller’s remarkable 1963 play, remains as relevant as ever, and carries with it a stern warning: in every community torn by suspicion, the most dangerous threat may be the community itself.

Comedy Series Presents: Greg Hahn

Greg Hahn has parlayed his absurdly energetic, all out style of physical humor, one liners and crowd work into a performance of immediate pandemonium and continuous laughs. His unique stylings have led to numerous television, corporate and theater appearances throughout the US and Canada.

Greg was raised in South Florida where in high school he amused the Catholic nuns by poking holes in his pockets enabling pencils to shoot out of his pant leg.

As a college basketball player, his enjoyment of half court shots earned him a sweet spot on the bench.

As a Captain in the Marines Corps, Greg kept his men highly motivated and could not overemphasize that camouflage is continuous.

While a buyer for Lockheed Corporation, he thought “Why make $200 a day, when I can be a comedian and make that in a week?”

After several serious jobs where he refused to be serious, Greg turned pro as a stand up comedian and landed a job as emcee for a theme park lumberjack show. This supplied him with four audiences a day, intoxicated ax swinging lumberjacks, and a log rolling dog.

Soon afterwards, he worked as stuntman in the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show at Universal Studios. “For $20 an hour, I’d run out and get hit in the head with a stick, perfect!”

He continually honed his style of comedy then headed to New York City. While in New York, Greg developed into a touring headliner and costarred in the independent film Tomorrow Night which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, after successful shows at the Montreal and Chicago Comedy Festivals, Greg enjoyed television appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien (NBC), Premium Blend (Comedy Central), Make Me Laugh (5 episodes, Comedy Central), Louis CK’s Pulp Comics (Comedy Central), 30 Seconds to Fame (Fox), Cedric the Entertainer Presents (Fox) and Star Search (CBS).

Come on out for a fun night of stand-up comedy and great drink specials at The Basement – located inside Memorial Auditorium. 
18 and over always welcome.
Tickets $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Limited number of VIP tables available.

PHS Theatre Presents: “AIDA”

TICKETS GO ON SALE NOVEMBER 7th

Produced by PHS Theatre at Memorial Auditorium under the direction of Greg Shaw. Tickets: $6, $8, and $10.

Join PHS Music Rep Theatre Class in the telling of a triumphant love story between an Egyptian prince and a slave that transcends warring nations and brings a country together. 

Winner of four 2000 Tony Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love.

An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh’s daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility that she faces as the leader of her people. Aida and Radames’ love for one another becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.

With an unforgettable score, featuring soaring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Aida is a modern crowd-pleaser that embraces exuberant dancing, staging and singing.

PHS Theatre Presents: “Breakfast with Santa”

This student-directed performance especially for young audiences has been a favorite of the holiday season for many years.

In partnership with Mount Carmel Foundation, the fundraising non-profit arm of Via Christi (formerly Mount Carmel) Hospital, PHS presents it as a gift to the community one Saturday morning each December.

PHS Theatre Department, under the guidance of theatre teacher Greg Shaw, produces the show portion of the morning, with a run time of about 30 minutes. The Foundation provides breakfast — usually donuts and juice — and a craft or coloring pages. And Santa always makes an appearance and poses for photos with children.

The morning is free and open to the public with no tickets nor reservations required.
