The language of magic and love is in the air on the Mount stage this fall. Join us for an evening of shenanigans when the mortals of Athens find themselves deep in the woods and under the mischievous spells of the fairy world in the Mount’s Shakespearean production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Journey with us into the mythical, magical world Shakespeare has created in this
highly produced classic comedy.

MSDA Spring Show – HAIRSPRAY

February 28, 29, & 30, 2019 at 7:30 pm; March 1, 2019 at 2:00 pm
Doris M. Byrne Performing Arts Center at Mount St. Dominic Academy
Hairspray is an American musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on John Waters’ 1988 film of the same name. The songs include 1960s-style dance music and “downtown” rhythm and blues. In 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she
becomes a celebrity overnight, and meets a colorful group of characters, leading to social change as Tracy campaigns for the show’s integration.

KISS ME KATE

Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 7:00 pm
Roundabout Theatre, 231 West 39th Street, New York, NY (Bus leaves MSD at 5:00pm)
In the constellation of musical comedy masterpieces, Kiss Me, Kate shines as perhaps Broadway’s most sparkling achievement. This is the winner of the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical, alive with onstage romance, backstage passion, comedy high and low, a hilarious dash of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, and the songwriting genius of Cole Porter at including “Too Darn
Hot” and “Always True To You In My Fashion.” Once again, Roundabout catapults you to musical comedy heaven, with a brand-new Kiss Me, Kate.
