Last year, as London West End’s Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, Mr. Chisnall accepted SCHS Music Director Luck’s invitation to come to America and meet the students of the Steele Canyon Players and Instrumental Music Department so that he might offer them advice and tutelage as they readied for their 2019 production of Les Misérables. That visit was a mutually beneficial experience as Chisnall stated, “The students of Steele Canyon High have had a lasting impression on my life and I feel so incredibly fortunate to have visited. The work that Heather Luck and Nicole LaBella do is nothing short of phenomenal and I thank all involved for giving me the greatest gift and allowing me to share some time with so many inspirational people who are the future of the industry that I very fortunately find myself in”. Putting his advice to work, the Steele Canyon Players had a successful sold-out run of their 2019 Les Misérables production and received the 2019 “Outstanding Ensemble” National Youth Arts Award San Diego/La Mesa. The students anxiously await Chisnall’s return to work with him again.

Dean Chisnall is originally from Lancashire, England, and a 2005 graduate from The Arts Educational School of Musical Theatre in London. Beyond his tenure as Shrek and in addition to his current lead role as Jean Valjean in the UK & Ireland Les Misérables tour, he most recently appeared as Jean Valjean in London West End’s Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre. Other West End and international theater credits include The Woman In White, Never Forget, Blood Brothers, Mama Mia!, Evita, Cinderella and La Cage aux Folles. Also, he has a variety of television, recording and concert credits to his name.

The Steele Canyon Players are rising stars in the local high school theater scene.  Under Theatre Director, Nicole LaBella and Musical Director, Heather Luck, students in the Steele Canyon High School Theatre and Instrumental Music departments produce an annual Fall play and an annual Spring Musical. The Spring production of The Sound of Music was named the Best High School Musical at the 2018 Broadway San Diego Awards after the first year of entering the competition that celebrates excellence in high school musical theatre.

Steele Canyon Charter High School is a California charter high school located near the eastern San Diego County communities of Jamul, Rancho San Diego, and Spring Valley.  Opened in 2000 and chartered in July 2007, the school serves students in grades 9 through 12.

The Steele Canyon Players & Orchestra Presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – December 11-15, 2019

Our theatre director, Nicole LaBella, is an Alpine resident and several SCHS students from Alpine have lead roles!

The Steele Canyon High School Drama Department and Instrumental Music Department announce their production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Show dates are Wednesday through Saturday, December 11, 12, 13 & 14, 2019 at 7pm with a matinee performance on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 2pm.  All performances are in the Steele Canyon High School Theatre, 12440 Campo Road, Spring Valley. Tickets for all performances are $10 each and may be purchased in advance online at http://www.showtix4u.com or for $15 at the box office on the day of performances.

As one of Shakespeare’s most popular romantic comedies, this play interweaves reality and magic, love and hate, chaos and order. Three distinct worlds are the focus: The Athenians, The Fairies and The Players. Chaos and comedy ensue when they all cross paths. This play has it all: angry parents, rebellious teens, eloping young lovers, unrequited love, a natural world asunder, mischievous fairies, magical potions, mistaken identities, struggling young actors, wedding revelries, and an ass. Contrary to Shakespeare’s original, this production takes place during modern times in the Mediterranean region. The addition of ethereal dances and orchestral accompaniment augment this “dream-like” play.

The production includes over 130 students in the cast, crew and orchestra. According to Theatre Director, Nicole LaBella and Music Director, Heather Luck, Steele Canyon High School musicals are unique as they are the only school in the area to perform with live orchestral accompaniment.

In 19th century France, Jean Valjean (Jackson Shaffer), released from years of unjust imprisonment, finds only mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption. He is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert (Sean Huitt), who does not believe Valjean can be reformed. Valjean aids a struggling working-class woman, Fantine (Rosie Barrack), by becoming a guardian to her child, who is poorly treated by her paid caregivers, the Thénardier’s (Tyler Hicks & Claire Doucet). The play progresses to the Paris student uprising of 1832, led by Enjolras (Ryan Singer), where a young Eponine (Mary Rose Vadeboncoeur) sacrifices everything for the love of a student revolutionary, Marius (Brice Cloke). Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves Marius, who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter, Cosette (Morgan Feeney Ingraham). Poignant, epic and uplifting, Les Misérables illustrates the triumph of the human spirit. “Do You Hear The People Sing?” This production is made possible with the generous support of the Tim Abbott Family & the Michael J. Slater Family.
