2015 Spring Musical: My Fair Lady

Devon Prep’s Music Society presented four performances of MY FAIR LADY  in the Spring of 2015. Called “the standard by which all [other] musicals are measured,” My Fair Lady uses brilliant dialogue and a magnificent musical score to set the legend of Pygmalion in turn of the century London. Devon Prep’s production included more than 60 young ladies from several schools as well as young men from Devon. Below are photos and a video from the Matinee performance.



2014 Fall Drama: The Election

Devon Prep’s Theater Program presented The Election, written by Don Zoldis and directed by Paul Recupero, on November 7, 8, and 9, 2014 in Devon Prep’s auditorium.

After an embattled student body president resigns in disgrace, Mark Davenport figures he will cruise to victory in the special election. After all, his only opponent is nerdy Christy Martin, who wants to eliminate football. But when a mysterious Super PAC gives her an unlimited budget, things start to get very ugly. Mark must face total annihilation or accept the services of a slick professional campaign manager with questionable ethics and a million-dollar Super PAC of his own.



 2014 Spring Musical: OKLAHOMA!  

Devon Prep presented Rodgers & Hammerstein’s landmark American musical OKLAHOMA! in March 2014. This show delivered comedy, conflict and romance as cowboys rivaled farmers on the eve of Oklahoma’s 1907 statehood.     The production included nearly 100 students, boys from Devon Prep and girls from 12 other schools in the tri-county area.


2013 Fall Drama: Twelve Angry Men
