Edison High School Theatre Program, Alexandria, VA

Operating as usual


An amazing call back session on Tuesday after school. And today, crew interest meeting after school. Things are happening at Edison High School theatre 


To all students, faculty, and staff returning to Monday, August 22, welcome to the 2022-23 school year! May it be filled with learning, joy, discovery, and creativity. As we say in the theatre, “Break a Leg!”


Tonight: the Cappies gala returns to the Kennedy Center to celebrate high school theater in our region.


As we send students off for summer break soon, here’s a glimpse of what’s ticking in their delightfully creative and dramatic heads (for fun).


A sneak peak at next year for Edison Theatre. “Get into the act!”


Today we celebrate and send off the Class of 2022. Congratulations to all the Edison Eagles about to soar.


As we close out this school year, we look forward to 2022-23. Stay tuned for more information about our shows for next year!


Just a small representation of the class of 2022 members I call “theatre kids.” This is their last full day. What a great group!
These and many more will be honored this Wednesday night at 7 at Thespies, our theatre awards night.

From rehearsals to performances and glimpses behind the scenes, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING was a delightful adventure with Shakespeare.

We are proud of our Edison Theatre students on their successful 4 performance run of Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, in both the courtyard and Blackbox. Even with two contrasting venues, the cast and crew brought the Shakespearean comedy to life with passion and a sense of fun. Enjoy this selection of snapshots showing moments onstage and behind the scenes.


We are excited for our predicament: Our spring Shakespeare production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is SOLD OUT!
If you have tickets, they will be honored. We apologize for any inconvenience. … But we’re still excited to be sold out!


The play begins at 6:30, not 7 as originally planned! Doors open at 6.
Please enter at door #2.
Here is a glimpse of our opening night performance of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The weather looks good for another outdoor performance tonight, May 5.
Get your tickets early!



This week, our feeder school Twain Middle opens “Dear Edwina Jr.”
Break legs and have great shows!

Day one of Tech Week in the books! Make sure you get your tickets for "Dear Edwina Jr." Opening this Friday!

After our Broadway experience workshop, the matinee of COMPANY, and dinner, we ended the evening with belly laughs at THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG. What a day!

So glad to have a cast singing and beginning to learn this show. So excited for the backstage crew leaders and new recruits to start working on the production. What a joy to be back, to be leading this fabulous musical for the fall. .drama Coming Nov. 2021


As we prepare to bid farewell to a very unusual school year, a few weeks ago we celebrated with our first in person event, the return of our annual Thespies - honoring the students in our theatre department. Thanks to our volunteer photographer Mrs. Madamba for the photos. We look forward to a summer break and (fingers crossed) a return to more normal conditions.
