Mullen High School has a rich tradition in the performing arts, dating back to 1969 with its first production, My Fair Lady. Our acclaimed performing arts program features performances in the Rilko Theatre. These world class venues coupled with the skill of our performing arts faculty, who are all working, professional artists, brings a unique experience to the Mullen High School student artist. We hope to see you at our next show!
Thank you all for joining our students for the virtual production of Outrageous Fortune. Our students and staff put in long hours to make it happen in the current circumstances. We all appreciate those that joined us virtually to continue to promote fine arts and theatre at Mullen High School.

Mullen Theatre presents Outrageous Fortune on the small screen with big talent October 23rd. Put many of Shakespeare's tragic characters together in a self-help group and you get a smart. laugh-out-loud comedy that's also quite educational! Tragic characters Ophelia, Desdemona, King Lear, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Romeo, Juliet and many others seek support at the Tragedians Anonymous group led by Porspera, where the meeting's theme is "Identify those who wrong us and those who we wrong". The characters proceed to confront the other characters in their plays, including Iago, Shakespeare's worst scoundrel. They're also forced to face their Fatal Flaws, who come to life onstage! When the confrontations don't work out as planned, the tragic characters seek revenge! Plans go awry, and the group members are ultimately forced to make some difficult decisions about fate, forgiveness, and foolery.
Keep your eye on MullenHigh.com, social media and in the Mullen Weekly for how you can watch our interpretation of this new classic. Remember viewing available October 23, 2020.
Mullen Theatre proudly presents, Once Upon a Mattress, the story follows the woes of a fictitious medieval kingdom caught in a debacle when an unfair queen decrees it illegal for her citizens to marry. Only when her son, the Prince Dauntless, finds true love and ties the knot may other citizens also unite in matrimony. The kingdom’s luck begins to change with the arrival of swamp-born Princess Winnifred, who is intent on winning the prince’s hand in marriage. What happens next involves the queen’s hilarious pursuits to keep her son a bachelor, involving wild dancing, melodrama, outrageous tests of strength, 20 mattresses and a pea.

Miss Brooks has plenty of teacher troubles and her "escape" is in dreaming about her vacation. She has travel folders on several Caribbean cruises which she discusses with the athletic coach who owns his own little sailboat. Miss Brooks suddenly sees that perhaps he's "the man" for her. She's glad she isn't putting on the school play this year so she won't have to fight him for use of the gym. Then the ax falls. The play is thrust upon her! A battle royal develops. The coach's star athlete Ted gives up the team to play the leading boy's part. The daughter of the school board president is determined to play opposite him but she reads her lines so poorly that Miss Brooks gives the role to an attractive nobody with real talent. And that is when the chaos begins!
