Sheldon High School Summer Theatre

Begun in 1972 by Jay Shelp, Sheldon High School Summer Theatre is the only high school repertory company in the state of Iowa and one of only a few in the nation. The program is notable because it is the only such program that occurs at a non-performing arts high school. SHSST presents six full-length shows over the course of six weeks during June and July. Students are responsible for all aspects of production, ranging from marketing to set-building to acting. The program is mainly staffed by SHSST alumni. Mrs. Lissa Lane Johnson now directs the program.

The production schedule for the 2008 season is as follows:

June 5-7, 8 PM: Steel Magnolias
June 12-14, 8 PM: The Philadelphia Story
June 19-21, 8 PM: Get Smart
June 26-28, 8 PM: A Christmas Carol
July 3-4, 7 PM; July 5, 2 PM: Peter Pan (children's show)
July 10-12, 8 PM: The Music of the Night (musical revue)
