In fact, our school is honored to have been named as a Hennepin Theatre Trust Spotlight School.This prestigious program honors high school musicals and students by formally recognizing the extraordinary achievements and process of developing the young artists, onstage and offstage, in our state’s high school musical theatre programs.

Saint John's Prep students have a variety of ways to become involved in our productions; from acting, set design, stage management, technical crew, to directing the pit orchestra and much more!  Parents also dedicate countless hours to the success of our theatre program. With the contributions of many, our school is able to consistently provide one of the best theatre experiences in Minnesota.
