2017-2018 Season

Notre Dame Academy Theatrical Season 2017-2018

Notre Dame Academy and Covington Catholic High School are pleased to announce the 2017-18 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.

Antigone, Oct. 20th-22nd

Jean Anouilh's Antigone adapts the play of the same name by Sophocles. It was written during World War II during the German occupation of France. After her brothers killed each other in an attempt to claim the throne of Thebes, Antigone buries Polyneices, the brother declared a traitor by the acting king, Creon. A story of faith vs. law, truth vs. fiction, and the power of young voices in the face of adversity, this is the perfect play for our young people today to re-examine. 

Fine Arts Showcase: Revolutions, Feb. 2nd-4th

Join us in declaring REVOLUTION as we examine the ways in which rebellion, revolution, and change have manifested throughout our musical/theatrical history! From the Beatles to Hamilton, we as a people have defied convention, made waves, and changed the course of history with our indomitable spirits and strength of will. This NDA/CCH Fine Arts Showcase will feature Theatre, Chorus, Dance Team, Visual Art and our Jazz Band. Come and bring the family!

Pippin, April 20th-22nd

Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.

Equally poignant as a black box production or as a splashy, spectacle-driven extravaganza, Pippin's message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum.
