Theater | Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School


SJND's Theater Program, led by a veteran of San Francisco's A.C.T. Conservatory, Lauren Rosi, produces three performances annually, including the SJND Spring Musical.

Spring Musical

Each year, dozens of students from each grade level audition and participate in this three-night show at the Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts in Oakland, complete with an ensemble band, professional choreography and a student-run backstage crew. Not a seasoned performer? No problem. Students of every skill-level are encrouaged to participate in various capacities.

SJND students perform in "Chicago," the 2018 Spring Musical.

2019 Spring Musical: Once On This Island

Save the date for SJND's annual Spring Musical at the Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts in Oakland! SJND students will once again dazzle audiences, this year with their performance of Once On This Island.

Once On This Island (2018 Tony- Best Revival of a Musical) tells the story of an orphaned peasant girl, Ti Moune, who rescues an injured wealthy boy from the other side of the island. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the Gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. On a Caribbean island divided by color, class, religion and gender, Ti Moune's determination and capacity to love attempts to break the wall that separates the societies and unite them. A Caribbean adaptation of The Little MermaidOnce On This Island will touch audiences of all ages.
