Spring Musical

Every spring our campus comes alive with the sound of music! St. Junipero Serra Catholic School produces a spring musical each year offering a unique opportunity for all students in grades 1 – 8 to be a part of a live theater performance. Whether it’s acting, singing, dancing or crew – there’s a role for every student who wants to be a part of this very special event. A cast and crew of 100+ from all grades and all ages work together collaboratively to communicate a compelling story through singing, dancing, acting, costuming, lighting and set design. Students develop self-confidence and learn all aspects of theater performance both in front of and behind the curtain.

Preparation and practice for the musical occur after school for 6-10 weeks, leading up to three performances for audiences of 400-600. These delightful performances create a special bond with our students, and could not happen without our dedicated parent volunteers and SJSC staff members. For more information about our Spring Musical Program, contact Janess Sifers, Music Teacher Grades 5-8,
