The performing arts have a strong history at FSHA. In the 1930s, students performed Shakespeare; today they skate around on stage as cast members in "Xanadu" and bring life to the complex women of "Radium Girls."
In addition to our theatre classes, the visual and performing arts department produces two theatre shows each year. Not only are students performing on stage, but they're also involved in every aspect of the production— from building and painting scenery, running lights and sound and stage management.
Recent productions have included "Mary Poppins" (spring 2020), This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing (fall 2019), "Gathering Blue / The Giver" (fall 2018), "Jesus Christ Superstar" (spring 2018), and "Radium Girls" (fall 2017).
Flintridge Sacred Heart's improv ComedySportz team was one of the first high school teams in the Los Angeles area and keeps audiences laughing at six shows each school year.
About "This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing"
THIS GIRL LAUGHS, THIS GIRL CRIES, THIS GIRL DOES NOTHING is a play for those who are willing to engage their imagination.
Triplet sisters are left in the forest by their woodcutter father and forced to find their own way in the world. From amongst the trees, three resolutions are made – one sister will walk one way to find purpose, one the other way to find adventure, and the third will stay right where she is to create a home. Twenty years later, having circumnavigated the globe, fought Vikings, toppled lighthouses, tamed wilds, and achieved greatness, the three meet again, as women. A moving and irresistibly charming feminist fairytale for young and old.

About "Jesus Christ Superstar," performed spring 2018
“Jesus Christ Superstar,” a rock-opera that takes a sometimes irreverent, always impassioned, look at Jesus’ last days. As Judas begins to question the motivations and methods of his friend and mentor, emotion and true belief are put to the test.
"Jesus Christ Superstar,” illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. A true classic of modern musical theatre.
Flintridge Sacred Heart’s production cast ONLY FEMALES IN EVERY ROLE. The keys were adjusted accordingly.
