Canterbury Tales

SHHS Theatre Arts will present The Canterbury Tales, by Lindsay Price, adapted from Geoffrey Chaucer's original iconic stories written in the 14th Century.

Chaucer's classic collection of tales comes to life as a group of travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage. To pass the time they entertain each other with a storytelling contest in which the best story wins a prize. The cast features nineteen of Shadow Hills High School's "Starry Knights" theatre students. Each and every performer gets a chance to shine in this spirited, charming script. There are great characters, lots of humour, strong ensemble work, and the text uses modern English. Scenery, props, costumes, and most technical theatre aspects of the show are designed, built and run by students, with dozens of students contributing behind the scenes for this production. The Canterbury Tales is produced by special arrangement with Theatrefolk (

All performances are held at the Shadow Hills High School Performing Arts Center.
