The Rimers of Eldritch

rimers_thumb The Acalanes DramaDons present The Rimers of Eldritch, directed by Ed Meehan.

This highly imaginative and affecting drama, with a political bite, runs April 29 & 30 and May 1 & 2 at 7.00pm in the Acalanes Performing Arts Center Little Theatre.

The Rimers of Eldritch was an off Broadway success by talented Lanford Wilson. The story is simple; it is a mystery. A man has been murdered. Questions abound! Who he is, who murdered him and what were the circumstances? To solve it, revelations are shared about this tiny, secretive mid-western town and its citizens. Please join the DramaDons for a vibrant, thoughtful and suspenseful evening.

Advance ticket sales available  on campus  during lunch and on the AHS Web Store. Limited tickets are available at the door. All proceeds benefit Acalanes Performing Arts Boosters - Drama. $10 Adults $7 Student & Seniors.

Please join the Performing Arts Department as we present Pippin on March 5, 6 at 7pm, and March 7 at 7:30pm in the Performing Arts Center.


Pippin is a wonderful tale of his search for who he is and what really matters. The music is by Steven Schwartz, the composer of “Godspell”, “Wicked”, “Prince of Egypt”, and the “Hunchback of Notre Dame” to name a few and the book is by Roger O. Hirson. The Theater Production Club has come up with a wonderful and colorful set! This annual production is a collaboration of Drama, Instrumental and Choral students who put together a Broadway musical every year.
