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!
Mullen High School will be one of the first high schools in the nation to produce the high school version of the Broadway hit, Mean Girls. The show runs March 30-April 1 at 7pm. Tickets are general admission; doors open at 6:30. Tickets are $12 for Adults, $8 Student/Seniors. We will be hosting a special free show for Mullen students on Thursday. Must have student ID to attend for free. Online ticket sales will be available March 20th.
Mean Girls - The High School Version explores the development and impact of female social cliques and relationships on their decisions and behaviors. Throughout the musical, the characters are presented with choices that will lead them down one of two paths - one of innocence or one of sin and eventual redemption. In the end, the audience is presented with redemption and forgiveness as the characters realize the importance of Respect for All Persons and Inclusive Community, two of our Lasallian Core Principles. The main character, Cady, demonstrates the importance of forgiveness and redemption through the development of authentic personal relationships built on trust and mutual respect instead of deceit and lies.
The musical theatre production is rated PG-13 and younger children or students are encouraged to skip this show due to some language and situations that are not appropriate for younger audiences.
Mullen Theater will be putting on their adaptation of As you Like It. This Shakespeare classic will make you laugh and pull at your heart strings, as you follow the love story of Rosalind and Orlando.
Shows are Thursday, October 20th; Friday, October 21st; and Saturday, October 22nd at 7:00pm in the Rilko Event Center on Mullen's campus. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $10 for all other guests. Tickets can be purchased online HERE or at the door.
As You Like It is a pastoral comedy by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in 1599 and first published in the First Folio in 1623. The play's first performance is uncertain, though a performance at Wilton House in 1603 has been suggested as a possibility.
As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques, who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches. Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
