As students filed into the Brass Recital Hall, excited whispers bounced off of the walls.

On Wed. April 28, the 2022-23 season for the performing arts was announced by Mr. Scott Lambert, director of visual and performing arts.

“The theme for this season is belonging,” Mr. Lambert said. “All of our shows will have something to do with that.”

The season was packed with exciting shows: in the fall, Kinkaid theatre will present The Three Musketeers as the mainstage performance and Cooking With Lard as the Underground play. In addition, the fall dance concert will be titled Hooray for Hollywood, which will feature dances from movies, and Children’s Theatre will put on How to Survive a Fairy Tale.

Finally, the big reveal was the Upper School musical, which is set to be The Hello Girls, a fact-based musical set during World War One which chronicles the story of the first female soldiers in the U.S. Army. 

“I’m really excited for next year’s season!” senior Jack Lemon said. “The show I’m most excited for is The Three Musketeers.

In the days leading up to the reveal, clues were posted on @kinkaidarts on Instagram, allowing students to make guesses. For example, the clue for The Three Musketeers was two swords, hinting at the swordplay in the show, and the clue for The Hello Girls was an array of telephones from the 1910’s, hinting at the role that the highlighted female soldiers played in the war.
