Theatre Arts Division
The Stapleton Theatre Company is the Theatre Arts division of the Stapleton School of the Performing Arts.
It is brought to you by the same team who operated the San Anselmo Town Players as part of the San Anselmo Recreation Department from 2001-2006. The same type of program, artistic quality, production values, instruction, nurturing and care that you came to know from the Town Players continues at Stapleton Theatre Company.

Musical Theatre Class
Musical Theatre (taught by Jenny Rand) introduces students to Broadway-style dance, song and theatre. Students will have the opportunity to develop all three essential musical theatre skills – acting, singing and dancing – at the same time! The class will include fundamental techniques such as voice and dance warm ups; the integration of singing, dancing and acting; large ensemble group numbers as well as exploration of solo performing. Each session will culminate with an informal performance for family and friends. Two age appropriate sections offered: 8-11 years on Mondays, and 11 years & up on Wednesdays. Class size limited to 12 students to incure individual attention. (Download Musical Theatre Curriculum)
A Christmas Carol – The Musical
The Stapleton Theatre Company is proud to present the 4th annual production of A Christmas Carol – The Musical.
Be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas as you watch the transformation of the stingy Ebenezer Scrooge into a man who awakens on Christmas morning with love and generosity in his heart!
Charles Dickens' classic gets the full Broadway treatment by the Broadway team of Alan Menken ("Beauty and the Beast," "Little Mermaid,"), Lynn Ahrens ("Ragtime," "Seussical") and Mike Okrent ("Crazy For You," "Me and My Girl.") The show received Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for Best Musical, and for ten years was one of New York City's most beloved holiday traditions.
This year’s production features a talented, multi generational cast of over 40 children, teens and adults. The extremely talented David Shirk reprises his role as Ebenezer Scrooge; Todd Krish plays Jacob Marley and we welcome Sandi V. Weldon to the role of Ghost of Christmas Present.
