From Ancient Egyptian pyramids to the yellow brick road in Muchkin-land and so many places in between, SHDHS Theater pushes the imagination of Crusaders who have the courage to take that step on the SHDHS stage. Speakeasies, Austrian mountains, and the Haitian islands are just a small sample of the amazing places SHDHS Theater takes our students and the audiences every year.

All students may participate in many fashions and functions to bring the play to life on stage as one community.
