Frequently Asked Questions:

"What's this show about?" A down on his luck artist wants to open a roller disco-- and he gets some help from Ancient Greece!

"Would my kids enjoy it?" ABSOLUTELY! The show is 90 minutes long and full of singing, dancing, and roller skating-- there's never a dull moment on stage! However, we would rate this show PG for some mild language and innuendo.

See you there!

Hello, Liberty fam--we are very excited to announce a virtual fall theater season! Please join us for an exciting series of acting, directing, and technical workshops open to all Liberty students, which will also include virtual performance opportunities. Details about individual workshops will be coming soon!

If you noticed we're being quiet about the spring 2021 season, don't fret! Rather than trying to predict the future, we have created several possible plans for a spring show, and will announce our choice in December.

Theater this year might look different, but we're still here! Liberty Theater Department is committed to our students' safety, as well as ensuring that all students have the opportunity to be part of our theater community. See you this fall!


Hello everyone--

We are sad to announce that the spring musical, "Shrek," has been officially cancelled. This was a difficult decision, but it was made with the safety of our students and community in mind. Thank you so much to all the students, parents, and staff who put in their time and energy to help make "Shrek" magical-- we will make art again soon!

All tickets purchased through the website ShowTix4U have been refunded in full. If you were planning on attending the show, we ask that you consider donating the cost of your ticket to the Liberty Theater Department. The spring musical is usually our biggest source of revenue, and helps us fund future shows-- we could use your help in making sure we provide the best theater education possible! If you would like to donate, please make checks out to Liberty Theater, and send them to Liberty High School at 1400 Dubuque St NE, North Liberty, IA 52317.
