Fall brings a wave of excitement to the stages at our our high schools. This year, our award-winning theatre programs will feature musical versions of “Shrek” and “Sister Act.”

“Each year we look at our talent and find shows that best showcase it,” said Ryan DeLaCroix, longtime director at Tartan Theatre. “There are 52 students in our production and they all bring a unique level of talent to the show.”

“Sister Act” is full of amazing music, fun dances and many great stage moments. 

“Audiences can look forward to the wonderful and fun story of the original movie and the added musical numbers, plots and fun that the stage musical brings,” added DeLaCroix.

Tickets for “Sister Act” are priced from $5-$10. Performances began Nov. 3 and will continue Friday, Nov. 10, and Saturday Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. with the final performance Sunday, Nov. 12, at 2 p.m.

For tickets and information call 651-702-8814, visit, or email Tartan High School is located at 828 Greenway Ave. N., Oakdale.

At North High School, audiences will be delighted to see their favorite ogre, Shrek, brought to life as a hilarious spectacle.

“I wanted a show that would be entertaining for the whole family,” said Kevin Barnard, adviser of North Theatre. “The costumes are really unusual and fun. In addition, there’s a wide variety of songs and dances including tap.”

“The students in this fall’s performance really like the show and the style of contemporary songs and dances,” he continued. “The kids are really making smart acting choices and they are funny. The fairy tale creatures are a blast to watch on stage.”

Performances began Nov. 2 with remaining show times scheduled 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, and Friday Nov. 10. Saturday, Nov. 11, will include two performances with a matinee at 2 p.m. and the usual evening performance at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $8 for students and seniors and $10 for adults. They can be purchased online at and at the door. North High School is located at 2416 East 11th Ave., North St. Paul.

Our talented students are working hard to create these amazing shows. I hope to see you in the audience!
