About the SSFS Community Play

The annual SSFS Community Play is a rich opportunity for students, parents, faculty, staff, alums, trustees, and others who are closely tied to the school community to enjoy working together to produce a play or musical. The Community Play is recognized as a signature extra curricular program; it delivers a quality theatre experience that is both entertaining and educational for both participants and audience. A wide range of plays and musicals are selected from year to year based on their educational value and relevance to the school’s mission statement, Quaker values, and curriculum.

Community Play Schedule: The Community Play is announced in late September. Auditions and crew sign-ups take place in November or December. Rehearsals are typically on weekends in January and February. Performances occur the last weekend in February sometimes into early March. Look for announcements in the All School Newsletter.
