Our 2023-2024 Season

Harriton Theater Company is excited to present 3 amazing shows this season!

November 16-18: The Importance of Being Earnest
Ernest Worthing has it all: A loyal best friend, a prestigious job, and the woman of his dreams seeking his hand in marriage. Unfortunately, there’s just one slight problem. He’s not actually Ernest. He’s Jack, an unassuming country boy masquerading as a big city hot shot. When others begin to discover his secret, Jack is forced to keep up his facade in increasingly ludicrous scenarios, in order to avoid the one thing he’d never do: Tell the truth.

January 18-20: The 2024 Winter One Act Festival
HTC’s annual Winter One Act Festival is a series of short plays directed, and sometimes written, by HTC seniors. A longtime HTC tradition, the One Acts give seniors an opportunity to experience the process of directing and putting together their own shows, as well as allowing actors to explore their talents in non-conventional roles.

April 4-6: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee features the stories of several young students with a passion for spelling, and possibly some childhood trauma. It follows the spellers as they interact, forming bonds and witnessing each other’s strange approaches to spelling. Things get a little messy at times as each individual character, or at least most of them, vie for their chance to win. Whether you’re easily distracted, homeschooled, politically aware, or stressed out, like many of our beloved spellers, you’re sure to enjoy this renowned musical comedy!

Learn More About Harriton Theater Company!

The Harriton Theater Company is a training ground for young performers and all who support them behind the scenes at Harriton High School. We pride ourselves in engaging the community through our love for theater.

HTC takes pride in its numerous student-run departments. Whether it be on or off stage, our departments offer many different opportunities for students to harness their passion for theater.

The HTC Executive Board is made up of three seniors, each with their own specific role. The Board is in charge of managing HTC’s operations, events, and communications.

Our coaches are drawn from Philadelphia’s theater community. They provide guidance to our student leaders and members in the performance, technical, and business aspects of theater.

HTC depends on local businesses and Harriton families to provide additional support. As a student-led company, we rely on the community to continue to provide theater and arts education. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
