Notre Dame Academy Theatrical Season 2016-2017
Notre Dame Academy and Covington Catholic High School are pleased to announce the 2016-17 theatrical performance season. The program for this season offers a variety of performances designed to offer something for everyone and to offer our students and families theatre that will provoke thought, conversation, and imagination.
The Crucible, Oct. 21st-23rd
The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem Witch Trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692-93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory of McCarthyism, when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists. The play remains relevant today, providing a voice for all peoples who find themselves oppressed/accused without proof and the frightening power of mob mentality.
Showcase: Decades, Dec. 2nd-4th
Join us as we celebrate the last century of music, dance, showtunes, and theatrical styles with our Showcase! We'll be dancing everything from the Can-Can to the Charleston, remembering the musical styles of everyone from the Andrew's Sisters to Pat Benetar, and celebrating the theatrical genius of artists from Laurel and Hardy to Tom Stoppard. It's going to be a joyous and exciting performance!
Nights of Student-Directed One-Acts, Feb. 3rd-4th
Join our students for two nights of one-acts, monologues, and scenes! All will be student directed and some are student-written, showcasing our students' talents in leadership and creativity. Please come and support the efforts of our students as they stretch their wings to become leaders and directors in their own right.
Jane Eyre, Mar. 31st-Apr. 2nd
Charlotte Bronte's great love story comes to life with music to lift your heart and set your spirit soaring. This beloved tale of secrets and the lies that secrets create, of unimaginable hope and unspoken passion, reminds us what it is to fall deeply, truly and completely in love. Jane's story begins in Gateshead, where she is in the unfortunate care of her cruel Aunt Sarah and cousin John, as per her uncle's dying wish. The miserable young orphan is finally rescued when she is sent away to attend Lowood School for Girls. After six years, Jane leaves Lowood and is shortly after hired as a governess at Thornfield Hall. Here she meets Mr. Edward Rochester, thus beginning her passionate and heart-wrenching journey of love, loss and the struggles of morality.
