Wishing all our students, faculty, supporters and their families a wonderful 2016.
This year's Fall drama, Almost, Maine by John Cariani was a huge success. The story, which tells the whimsical tales of nine different couples coping with love on one cold, wintry night, drew large crowds and rave reviews. The cast consisted of several veterans to the stage, including seniors Aidan MacLean and Melissa Thompson, as well as some fresh faces who appeared for the first time before a live audience, including juniors Alvin Kim and Ana Hernandez and freshmen Angela Tashik and Noelle Fusco. The students celebrated their success at a cast party at Nellie's Place following their final performance.
The Pasta Dinner was a great success, thank you to family and friends that attended, and that the full cast is now working hard at rehearsals for the musical.
