Musical: Spamalot – Show runs March 2-5 (Th-Sat doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7:00; Sunday is a 2:00 matinee). Tickets are pre-sold online as well as at the door. Tickets go on sale online on Wednesday, Feb 23rd at http://hempsteadmusic.seatyourself.biz
The show runs approximately 2- 2 1/2 hours. Spamalot is an irreverent parody of the tales of King Arthur. Taken from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” King Arthur assembles his knights for a very silly quest. Along the way they encounter a temperamental deity, get attacked by rude French guards, fend off a fiendishly evil bunny rabbit, all to find the elusive “holy grail.” The show may be mature for young audiences, so parents with younger children may want to look into the show (watch clips online) before buying tickets for children.
24hr Play: This is a one-night student-written production. Saturday, March 25th at 7:00pm. The show runs approximately 1- 1 ½ hours. The play is written and rehearsed in a 24 hour time period.

The Spring Play – “Stage and Screen” will run Thursday, April 27th through Saturday, April 29th in the Hempstead Auditorium.

Everyone is welcome to Hempstead shows, but we ask that children are old enough to sit through a performance in their own paid seat. Senior Citizens wishing to obtain a district pass for free admission must contact the DCSD Forum for details, please check to make sure these passes apply to all shows. We appreciate all of your support and hope to see you at these fantastic events!
