Acalanes DramaDons presents The Curious Savage

savage_thumb Join the Acalanes DramaDons in their entertaining and comedic production of The Curious Savage, directed by Ed Meehan, Acalanes drama teacher. The plot has delightful twists involving a widow who inherited million of dollars from her husband and wants to use the money to help others realize their hopes and dreams.  Her grown-up stepchildren want the money for themselves and commit the widow to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses." Instead, the widow leads the self-serving stepchildren on a hilarious chase for the inheritance, while befriending the charming "guests" of the sanatorium. The story playfully highlights how, in a world that seems motivated by greed and dishonesty, the virtues of kindness and affection can prevail!  The production runs November 10, 12, 13 and 14 at 7.00pm in the Acalanes little theatre.  Tickets are available in November during lunch at AHS and on line from the web store. Limited ticket sales at the door.  Doors open at 6.30pm.  Adults $12, Students and Seniors $7.  It is a night you won't want to miss!


Welcome to the Acalanes High School Performing Arts Website

The Acalanes High School Performing Arts Boosters (APAB) is the non-profit organization established to support the choral, drama and instrumental programs at Acalanes High School.  APAB has three primary missions:

  • Fundraising - primarily for activities outside of the classroom such as tours, clinics, competitions, commissioning music or plays
  • Advocacy - communicating to the community about our programs
  • Recruiting - attracting students into Acalanes’ performing arts classes

We are dedicated to the prinicpal that all the performing arts at Acalanes are worthwhile, provide students with invaluable skills and confidence that will last them a lifetime, and are worthy of the community's support of time and money.

How Music Could Make You a Rocket Scientist

All of the talk about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is missing an A. There's a strong argument for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)

"There is a very strong correlation between childhood engagement in the creative arts and measurable success later in life, researchers at Michigan State University have found." (continue [ABC World News 10/27/2013])
