Performing Arts: The Camden Catholic Tradition

Camden Catholic High School has a rich tradition of musicals stretching back to 1922 with Victory of the Cross. The continuing list of productions is also a record of the history of American musical theater, a history as old as Camden Catholic, which was founded just three years after the first, Broadway musical opened.

For the record: Guys and Dolls leads the hit parade with four CCHS productions (’69,’78,’91,and 2000); tied at three productions each are The Red Mill (’35,’42, and ,’47), The Sound of Music (’67,’82,and ’93) and West Side Story (’70, ’88, and ’96).

Year after year over 150 students participate in the musical production. Most recently, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella (2017), Les Miserables (2015) and Pippin (2016), were produced by a trio of alumni: Joe Farina ’73 (production supervisor), Angela Leone ’04 (director) and Robert Klimowski ’04 (technical director), with the addition of Joanne McBride ’84 (choreographer) in 2016. Audiences are truly enamored with the acting, vocals, music and set design, declaring over and over again, “you forget this is a high school production!”
