11 Shows High Schools Always Put On

The reasons you hear the same musicals being put on in high schools every year.

11 Shows High Schools Always Put On
NY Habitat

Around this time of year is when schools and other performance venues put on their spring musicals. And I always wonder why the same musicals are always done. These are biggest reasons why:

1. The Addams Family

This musical is used so often with schools because of it's likable and recognizable characters. Their interesting quirks are good for weird and interesting plots.

2. Legally Blonde

Unfortunately at most nonperforming arts schools there are not a lot of boys in drama club. And "Legally Blonde: The Musical" has a lot of girls in it. And a lot of pink.

3. Little Shop of Horrors

This show is popular among schools because of the weird and interesting subject matter and the cartoon- like and satirical characters. But the thing that really makes this show fun for schools is the interesting sets and props (i.e. the gigantic plant shown above).

4. The Wizard of Oz

Simple: it's one of the most seen and beloved movies of all times. Everybody knows it and everybody knows the story, so it's an easy and safe decision. "There's no place like home."

5. Fiddler On the Roof

The reason everyone does Fiddler is because of costuming. You get your beat up boots and your dads old button down or your mom's old shawl, and you're good.

6. Beauty and the Beast

This is the same as "The Wizard of Oz", everybody knows and loves the story. You can't go wrong.

7. Mary Poppins

I mean, Julie Andrews is pretty cool.

8. Into The Woods

These are the stories we all know but with a twist. Rapunzel gets squished by a giant and a woman can only get pregnant if a cow eats a certain number of fairy tale items... you're in for a ride.

9. The Sound of Music

As I said... a LOT of people like Julie Andrews.

10. Shrek the Musical

I have no words. I don't know why people like this musical so much.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!
