Kill Me, Deadly on the SBA Stage
Charlie Nickels has a hard life as a gumshoe in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles and things are only made harder by the murder of a client and the theft of her 300-karat diamond. With the help of his wise-cracking secretary, Ida, Charlie seeks out the many suspects: smarmy bookworm, Clive, equestrian beauty Veronica, snooty butler Wilson, sensitive muscle Louie, and Mona, a nightclub singer who captures Charlie’s affections...and suspicions. Packed with romance, intrigue, murder, and laughs, this detective noir is a smart parodythat will keep you guessing until the end.

Welcome to the Theatre Program at SBA!
The theatre program at SBA is an awesome place to experience the fine arts and to be a part of something unique and rewarding here at SBA. Students who participate in the theatre program enthusiastically love being a part of this program. Michael Williams, Director, brings drive, focus, detail, and passion into the program, where students learn to not only perform well on stage, but to also learn about various aspects of the world of theatre, its history, and how it affects the world around us. The Theatre Program has many components from productions and stage crew to classes for acting and technical theatre. Students are offered opportunities to perform, grow, learn, explore, and participate in various events. Our performers are made up of athletes, students involved in government, musicians, ambassadors, traditional theatre-driven students, and much more. Theatre truly is for everyone, and we would love to have you as part of the family.
Productions at SBA are top-notch, with great attention to character/plot development, sets, costuming, makeup, lighting, sound, and all the various parts of a show that make it so rewarding to be a part of. Typically, there are three shows each year: Fall/Comedy, Winter/Drama, Spring/Musical. All shows are challenging, full-length productions meant to challenge students and to provide a professional theatrical experience for our audiences. Auditions for productions are open to every student at SBA – no limitations based upon prior experience or placement in theatre classes. We want you as a part of our productions, and to experience what it is about theatre that makes students want to do it again, and again.
Acting classes at SBA are structured to guide students from the basics of acting to more complex means of expression. Earlier classes focus on acting games and exercises, light improv, and exploration of the body, the voice, the face, and the senses. As classes progress, students move into monologue, dialogue, emotional exploration, and eventually writing, directing, and designing. Any student with a desire to learn more about acting and the process of theatre is welcome to sign up for these classes. Students are expected to take all material seriously, and to approach all work with dedication, enthusiasm, and an eagerness to grow.
Technical Theatre classes at SBA are the backbone of set construction, lighting design, sound, and various other technical aspects of all productions at the school. Students are expected to build, paint, invest hours toward shows after school, and must be part of the stage crew for every production throughout that given semester. This class is for hard working students who want to help to build and enhance the theatre program.
