2019 Children's Theater Success

Twenty of our talented sophomores took the stage to tell the story of what really happened after “once upon a time.” This year’s show was produced and directed by Ms. Maureen McNulty, coordinator of the performing arts and teacher, and the IHA Theater Arts class.

As the story goes, a substitute narrator is called in on short notice to present a variety of classic fairytales. But just as each tale begins, characters show up to interrupt and correct the newbie narrator’s telling of their story. The main characters have hysterical idiosyncrasies—from Cinderella being a clean freak and the Three Little Pigs being hypochondriacs, to Rapunzel being a total diva and Little Red Riding Hood is a lawyer defending the Wolf. The chaos continues until the narrator finally breaks down in frustration. Congratulations on a job well done to the outstanding cast of sophomores:

Thank you to the more than three hundred children and faculty members from Sacred Heart School, Suffern; St. Margaret's School, Academy of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and Visitation Academy who attended this year’s performance!
