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. Class meets on Mondays and is designed for students ages 8-13 years. Class size limited to 12 students to insure individual attention. (Download Musical Theatre Curriculum)
Spring 2014 Musical – OLIVER!
OLIVER! is the award-winning musical adapted from Dickens’ “Oliver Twist”.
After running away from the orphanage run by the heartless Mr. Bumble, Oliver meets the Artful Dodger and is recruited to pick pockets for Fagin. There, Oliver finds a friend in Nancy, but neither she nor the boy is fit for a life of crime.
OLIVER delights everyone with its outstanding musical numbers- Food, Glorious Food, I'd Do Anything, Where is Love?, Consider Yourself, As Long As He Needs Me, Who Will Buy and Reviewing the Situation are musical theatre classics.
Performances: May 9-18 2014, The Playhouse
