2017 High School Musicals



Birdville HS Fine Arts Department


Mary Poppins

January 19-21 @ 7 p.m.

January 22 @ 2:30 p.m.

Birdville HS Auditorium

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time as a live musical by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh, and music composed by Richard M. Sherman, Robert B. Sherman and Julian Fellowes!  Bert, the jack-of-all trades, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again.


Haltom HS Fine Arts Department


Damn Yankees

January 21 & 23 @ 7 p.m.

January 22 @ 3 p.m.

Haltom HS Auditorium

A musical based on the novel “The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant” by Douglass Wallop. Joe Boyd sells his soul to the devil, Mr. Applegate, for “one good Long ball hitter” for his team, the Washington Senators. Mr. Applegate grants his wish, turning him into a 22-year-old sports superstar who must go back to his wife before 9 p.m. on the final game day if he doesn’t want Mr. Applegate to get his soul.


Richland HS Fine Arts Department



January 21 & 23 @ 7 p.m.

January 22 @ 2 p.m.

Richland HS Auditorium

A musical by Stephen Schwartz based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew.  A small group of people help Jesus tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
