Past Performances

Upper School Musical

ZIS Presents %22The Theory of Relativity, the musical

The Theory of Relativity

Was performed in March 2022 a the Upper School Theatre. 

The Theory of Relativity is a touching, honest, funny and endearing musical that probes the minds and hearts of today’s college students as they emerge into a world that is almost impossible to make sense of.  The show has a brilliant score by Neil Bartram and a trenchant, finely observed and often hilarious script by Brian Hill.  This show is very much about connections. Connections between others and how they are formed as well as the connection with oneself and our own identity.  

Everyone in the cast has a moment to shine, and the astonishing talent of the cast collectively actually contributes to the impact of the play, since this will be a demonstration of the gifts and heart that the characters in the story did not know they possessed yet. Theory is a musical on the cutting edge of today’s theatrical sensibility, and its impact and significance as a work of art will, I think, only grow in the years to come. 

Family Concert Night -  Premiered May 28
