About Big the Musical

Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become "big". To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do "adult" things like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for, and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.  “Big” is the perfect show for audiences of all ages!

Friday, June 10th  & Saturday, June 11th @ 7:30

Stinger Classic:

Eight Scenes In Search of a Theme

Two People x Four Corners = Eight Scenes in Search of a Theme

HHS' Advanced Theatre class presents an evening of scenes from the great writers of the American Theater.  Scenes span time periods and cross boundaries from the 1930's to the present.  Through class discussions and exercises, we have discovered that all of our scenes are in some way about connecting - exploring a desire to connect or lack of human contact.  Interspersed throughout our scenes is original text that explores the idea of human connection in today's age of social media disconnection.

June 10th & 11th @ 7:30 pm

Admission FREE

All HHS Theatre productions are presented in the Herndon High School Auditorium, 700 Bennet Street, Herndon, Virginia 20170.

Tickets are available at the door one hour prior to each performance.
