Fall Musical 2014, In the Heights

Theatre education at Bishop McNamara enables students to develop intellectually by expanding their capacities for creative thought and expression and by encouraging critical thinking skills. Furthermore, theatre education fosters personal growth, self-confidence, knowledge, and a variety of skills and attitudes that are transferable to a wide range of careers.

The Theatre Program produces a fall musical and a spring play annually to showcase the many gifts and talents of the Bishop McNamara students. Participation both on and off stage teaches students to be a part of something bigger than themselves.

Spring Play, The Diviners


Upcoming auditions:

This year, The BMHS Theatre Program is excited to announce the fall musical as Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance.

Set sail with this classic comedy, a hopeful farce that follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates' way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel. Frederic's melodious tones win over the heart of Major-General Stanley's songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers that General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an "ingenious paradox" may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of "The very model of a modern Major-General."

Auditions will be held in the Fine Arts Theatre on September 4th, 5th and 6th, followed by an afternoon of call-backs on September 7th.
