The Saint James Mummers’ Society has a rich and colorful production history going back to the 1920’s. The Society offers a wide range of performance opportunities for students, including serious dramas, murder mysteries, madcap comedies, senior-directed one-act plays, and the annual production of Saint George and the Dragon (a Second Form Christmas play). Our spring musical engages over 60 singers, dancers, stage techs, and student instrumentalists. These productions require long hours, late nights, and many rehearsals, offering a challenging, yet rewarding opportunity for our young actors and actresses.
Historical note: A mummer is a traditional masked mime or actor in a folk play, or a merry-making actor or performer. Our theatre program has been called The Mummers’ Society since the 1940’s. Prior to the 1940’s, The Saint James Wig and Mask Club presented theatre productions with local performance troupes in Hagerstown, Maryland.
The Kellam Auditorium is a 264-seat theater that affords young actors and technicians a colorful hands-on experience and an opportunity to bring theatre to life.
