Thirty-four Middle School students took the stage for three fun-filled performances of the musical Matilda JR, a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination. After four weeks of rehearsals, the students thrilled and delighted audiences with the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. Upper School students from the Performing Arts class lent a helping hand and assisted with direction, choreography, and design.
As the last show of the season, Matilda JR marked the end of the tenure of Director of Plays Jenny Madden. After 24 years, Madden is stepping down from her role as Director of Plays to focus on providing excellent after-school and summer programming as Director of Auxiliary Programs. We are thankful for Madden’s years of service and extraordinary work in St. Mary’s theatre department.
