Theatre Arts Division

The Stapleton Theatre Company is the Theatre Arts division of the Stapleton School of the Performing Arts. It is brought to you by the same team who operated the San Anselmo Town Players as part of the San Anselmo Recreation Department from 2001–2006. The same type of program, artistic quality, production values, instruction, nurturing and care that you came to know from the Town Players continues at Stapleton Theatre Company.

A Christmas Carol: The Broadway Musical

A Christmas Carol—The Musical is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens' most beloved story: the tale of curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge facing his selfish ways as three ghosts lead him through his past, present and future on Christmas Eve. This holiday classic gets the full Broadway treatment with a Menken/Ahrens score filled with beautiful melodies.

This Stapleton Theatre Co. tradition has been restaged and re-imagined for performances at the Playhouse in San Anselmo. Directed by Bruce Vieira with musical direction by Judy Wiesen and choreography by Ashley Kimball, and featuring a cast of local, multi-generational talent, A Christmas Carol offers a joyful musical theatre experience for the whole family!



Theatre Classes, Camp & Workshops

Fall 2018 Junior Theatre Workshop:  Beauty & the Beast

Directed by Ashley Kimball with Musical Direction by Judy Wiesen
Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast! Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
