Herndon High School Theatre
Hamlet This Weekend!!!

Hamlet by William Shakespeare

HHS Advanced Theatre Production Classic

June  13 & 14  at 7:30 p.m.   (Mature themes & Swordplay)



From our Director Zoe Dillard's Program Note


“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Hamlet, Act I, Scene iii


Truth. I suppose it is the most compelling aspect of Hamlet; he seeks it through the life (and death) of the play, desperate for clarity. His story transcends time and place--post-apocalyptic or Elizabethan—the search for truth and clarity is a seminal part of human development. . . . The fact that Shakespeare chooses a wise old fool to talk about being true to oneself is something to ponder also, just like that famous “To be, or not to be…” speech. It all goes back to being fully present, fully committed, fully responsible for the actions that declare who we are—goals and intentions fully realized or not. So who are we?

Grand Young Actors Camp


Registration is Open!!!
Our Grand Young Actors program will be held June 30 - July 3, 9 a.m. - noon.  Children, from rising 3rd graders to rising 6th graders, will enjoy theatre games, work on audition skills and creative movement.  Camp is $100.  Best of all, the kids get to know our director, Zoe Dillard, and our counselors who are rising seniors and Class of 2014 grads, and get comfortable at Herndon HS.  We've enjoyed our GYA kids as much as they've enjoyed our program.  And it is really fun to watch them grow up and move on to our month-long theatre production camp.

Blithe Spirit

Charles Condomine lives an elegant life of sophisticated playfulness as an English author, living with his second wife.   Research for an upcoming novel leads him to a psychic, a séance and the unexpected return of his first bride!  What is a man to do when the ghost of his first wife annoyingly collides with the demands of his present, living wife?  Join us at Herndon HS Theatre to experience the hilarious results—chaos, innuendo and plots of the amusing “undead” ensue!

Set in the sophistication of the early 1940’s, Noel Coward’s naughty, witty comedy, Blithe Spirit, is one of Theatre’s guilty pleasures!

Produced by Special Arrangement with Samuel French

(for Mature audiences)

May 1, 2 & 3, 2014  at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets:  $10
