ASL then and now: performing arts

Over the decades, ASL’s love for all things drama and music have never faltered! With this year's High School play, Legally Blonde, premiering this week, we thought this would be a great time to take a look at some of ASL’s theatrical history.

Since the opening of ASL’s current home at One Waverley Place in 1971, the School Center for Education and the Arts, has hosted a range of theatrical masterpieces. The Center, formerly known as the Annenberg Theatre, underwent significant renovations in 2006 and officially reopened with its new name in March 2008. With a larger capacity and new equipment, students and faculty alike were excited to create some theatrical magic. 

From Sandy Wilson’s The Boyfriend to this year's Legally Blonde, there is no dramatic challenge that our Eagles hasn’t risen to yet. Take a look at some of the most memorable performances below.

1. High school performance of Sandy Wilson’s The Boyfriend (1972)
