Mount Saint Dominic Academy

Theater Arts

Mount St. Dominic strives to continue to build a theater arts program which both educates and entertains in front of and behind the curtain.

Trained professionals help our young women explore their talents in technical, practical and theoretical aspects of acting, set, lighting, sound and costume design. Our productions have been recognized with nominations and honorable mentions by the Papermill Playhouse Rising Star Awards.

Almost, Maine is set in a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite.

Conrad Birdie has been drafted to the army. As a farewell, the rock and roll star is scheduled to sing Albert Peterson’s “One Last Kiss” and kiss a girl from Sweet Apple, Ohio live on the Ed Sullivan Show. However, Conrad’s hip-thrusting makes more than one man in town uncomfortable, many of whom attempt to stop the show from happening. Meanwhile, Rosie wonders if Alfred, for whom she does everything, will ever leave his mother’s shadow.
