Ham on Regal History

Ham on Regal was born in the fall of 1963, with the opening of Joel E. Ferris High School. Two parent-teacher groups combined to put together a show that would raise funds to support school activities. The success of the show truly bonded the two groups and laid the foundation for the tremendously strong parent-school community we now enjoy at Ferris.


The Ham on Regal Players acquired its name from the title of the 1969 production. While searching for a name for the show, the chairman suggested “Ham on Regal” because the school faces Regal Street. Since then, the troupe has been known as the Ham on Regal Players or "Hams" for short. The five decade long venture stems from the work of thousands of parents and teachers over the past 54+ years.

The benefits from being involved in the show are remarkable! Ferris teachers gain support for their programs. The students benefit from improved programs and parental involvement in the production of the show. As parents, we gain lifelong friendships, work collaboratively for a common goal to enhance the educational experience for our children and we have lots and lots of fun!

Ham on Regal has many traditions. From awards to on stage antics, skits, stingers, the show "formula", the progression of participation from Hamlet (a first year parent) to Hammie (a seasoned veteran) to Hambone (when your last student graduates from Ferris you move on from Ham on Regal), and finally packing up the costumes and music until next year. The traditions are rich and make for fond memories.

A very special tradition is the morning “Student Con,” where the cast has a special performance for the students of Ferris High School. And at the end of every performance the audience is invited to sing along with the cast to the Ham on Regal theme song, “Once a Year Day”.

Ham on Regal Celebrated its 50 Year Anniversary in 2013. Check Out the 50 Fun Facts that were used to count down to The Opening Show of Our 50th Year!
