Theatre Collage

The vibrant theatre program at Bishop O’Connell High School offers students the opportunity to dive deep into a variety of theatrical disciplines, whether onstage or off. There are two mainstage productions a year, a play and a musical, as well as smaller productions throughout the year such as the fun Christmas tradition, A Very DJO Christmas Carol.

In theatre classes, students study theatre from its roots in Ancient Greece through Shakespeare, Chekhov and Ibsen, and all the way to modern American drama and musical theatre. They will gain a variety of techniques for building character and physicality such as Viewpoints and Meisner technique. 

Students interested in technical theatre have the opportunity to learn lighting, sound, stage management, costuming, prop design, set building, and more. Technical theatre students support the O’Connell community for a variety of assemblies, Masses, and events throughout the year. No experience is required to get involved!

All students who participate in the theatre program are inducted into the O’Connell Players, the student-led community building group that supports the mainstage productions and organizes social activities for theatre students. In addition, students who demonstrate commitment to and excellence in the theatre program are eligible to join our chapter of the International Thespian Society, an honors society for high school thespians.

Students interested in auditioning for productions or getting involved in theatre tech should email Miss Gretchen Midgley at
