Welcome to Calvert Hall Theatre

Great theatre drives an audience to a reaction: to yell, to think, to laugh, to cry, and even to scream. It transports the audience, and the performers, to a place far beyond the theater. The Calvert Hall Theatre Department is a vibrant and flourishing program that offers this experience to the young men of Calvert Hall, as well as to talented young ladies from local high schools. The program drives our students to take risks and learn to communicate with honesty, clarity, and passion.
 
Theatre students are trained in all aspects of technical theatre and design, including how to run and manage the sound and light equipment for our state-of-the-art stage and our 1300-seat theater. Each season, they produce and perform two to three full length productions.
 
For more information about the Calvert Hall Theatre program, please contact our theatre Director, Mrs. Kelly Kamp.

Description: Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous Tito Morelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Othello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant, Max, believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli’s costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume, ready to perform. Now two Othellos are running around in costume and two women are clamoring for Morelli’s attention, each thinking she is with the real star. A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laugher.
