Footloose: The Musical

PERFORMING ARTS

For students with musical interest and theater talent, the performing arts program is designed to increase individual ability. The performing arts program enlivens the cultural life of the Hoban community.

One credit of Visual or Performing Arts is required for graduation.

MUSIC PROGRAM

The music courses may satisfy the requirement at many universities for a unit in visual and performing arts. All students with musical and acting ability are encouraged to use it by participating in the choral, steel drum band and/or theater programs. Some cocurricular time commitment is necessary for membership in both organizations, but the benefits are extensive.

Participants in performing ensembles perform at the Winter and Spring Fine Arts Festivals and in the annual Ohio Solo and Ensemble Contest held in late January or early February.

Music Course Offerings

THEATRE PROGRAM

Participation in theater allows students to gain knowledge about the theatre through hands-on learning. Whether you choose to perform on stage or work behind the scenes, you will learn about theatre, grow as an individual and enjoy the close-knit family of the theatre program.

2024 SPRING MUSICAL: THE LITTLE MERMAID

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."

Ariel (Molly Maltempi), King Triton's (Jacob Smith) youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric (James Kline) in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula (Katherine Cihlar), to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder (Anna Ribovich) the fish, Scuttle (Rylee Zaucha) the seagull and Sebastian (Emma Boring) the crab to restore order under the sea.

THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG: 2023 FALL PLAY

2023 FALL PLAY: THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG

From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!
