Partnering with our sister school, Saint Joseph, our theater program puts on 4 major productions each year.
The SJB Theater Program provides an experience that helps to instill confidence, craftsmanship and pride in our young men and offers students the chance to learn the craft of theater through its many disciplines, including:
- Technical Theater Design
- Set Construction
- Costumes Design
Theater partners with our nearby sister school, Saint Joseph High School and provides a wide variety of performing opportunities including four major productions each year: two musicals and two dramatic productions, two located in the SJB Theater and two at SJHS.
In addition to the annual productions, students can participate in the very popular Coffee House, combining Improvisational Comedy and Open Mic Music Acts. Theater students also have the opportunity to participate in two Drama Teachers Association of Southern California competitions in the fall and spring.
The year is 1985. The place is New Jersey. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie.
A wannabe rock star, making ends meet as a wedding singer in 1985 New Jersey, changes his tune in a hurry when he is left at the altar by his own fiancée, but help is on the way in the form of a waitress who works his wedding gigs.
The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.
The wonderfully talented student performers, designers and artists of St. John Bosco and Saint Joseph High School are excited to present this classic story filled with fun, energy and heart.
About the Director
SJB's Theater Program is run by Mr. Martin Lang, who has worked as a professional director and actor for more than 20 years. Mr. Lang has directed for theatres such as the Pasadena Playhouse, Laguna Playhouse, The Glendale Center Theatre and The Long Beach Playhouse/Studio Theatre.
He employs many professionals for the school's productions from the Los Angeles Theatre Community to give students the best possible opportunity to succeed. This results in a high level of professionalism and production that has given the program a reputation of excellence far beyond that of most high school theater programs.
