Spring Musical 2023

Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up tells the all-new yet somewhat familiar story of a square little town in the middle of a square state in the middle of a square decade. A lonely young girl dreams of hitting the open road and then into her life rides a guitar-playin' roustabout who changes everything and kick-starts a hip-swivelin' musical fantasy that will have you jumpin' out of your blue suede shoes! The show features all Elvis Presley hits such as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Burning Love," "Jailhouse Rock," "Love Me Tender" and "Don't Be Cruel." All Shook Up is bound to be another Blanchet showstopper!

Save the dates!
All Shook Up will perform on April 28, 29 and 30 at 7:30 pm at The Moore Theatre in Downtown Seattle. Stay tuned for details on purchasing tickets.

About Our Program

At Bishop Blanchet, our drama department's motto is "Truth and Courage." Whether students intend to pursue a career in theatre or are simply looking to try something new, we believe that making theatre cultivates creativity, sensitivity and enthusiasm in young people, and our program offers a supportive environment where students can make bold choices. 
 
The drama department offers a comprehensive three-part sequential acting program, three classes in theatre design, and a three-show season: a fall play, a student directed one-act festival, and a spring musical.
 
Students can participate in the performances both on stage acting and behind the scenes with one of our five crews: Stage Crew, Costume Crew, Hair and Makeup Crew, Marketing Crew, and Stage Management.
 
For more information about drama clubs like the Improv Team or the International Thespian Society, visit the Clubs page.
