Hilton Head Preparatory School to present

"Almost, Maine" and "Les Misérables"

Hilton Head Preparatory School is excited to announce its 2017-2018 upper school performing arts schedule. The year will open with the production of ALMOST, MAINE at Prep's own Main Street Theatre from November 9-12, 2017. ALMOST, MAINE, written by John Cariani, opened Off Broadway in the winter of 2005/2006 and has been produced by over 2500 theater companies in the United States (and by over a dozen companies internationally) making it one of the most frequently produced plays of the past decade. ALMOST, MAINE takes place in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night's dream about romantic relationships.

Prep is pleased to present Les Misérables as its second upper school performance in the Main Street Theatre from February 22-25, 2018. Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. Featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time and some of the most memorable characters to ever grace the stage, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.


We hope that everyone fared well after the storm and is safe. The Prep campus is in great shape and is ready to welcome back students and faculty. Although Beaufort county has announced they will go back to school tomorrow, Hilton Head Prep recognizes that many of our families and faculty traveled a great distance to evade the severity of the projected storm. That being said, Hilton Head Prep will re-open for class on Thursday in an effort to allow adequate time for everyone to return safely and attend to their homes as needed. Safe Travels.

Dear Parents,

As of the most recent Beaufort County Emergency Services report there have not been any decisions made with regard to school closure or evacuation dates. As such, we will hold classes tomorrow and communicate county and state directives as they are made known to us. You can also follow county and state reports by visiting their respective websites. Unfortunately our students were quick to self-report false school closures and evacuation notices that prompted numerous parent calls to our school to confirm the false reports.

High school and middle school athletics will have a number of changes in their game schedules for the coming days. The athletic department will be communicating those changes as they are finalized. If school is open and weather permitting we will attempt to have afternoon athletics. If school is canceled, all athletic competitions and practices will be canceled as well.

I have attached the emergency notification again for your reference,

Text "Prep" to 843-352-8390 to join the emergency text message system.
