Casting will be announced on Monday, February 4.
There will be an All-Cast read through of the script on Wednesday, February 6.

What Kind of Commitment Can You Expect?
We have a long and rich history of putting on excellent productions. We work with families who have other commitments (sports, music lessons, travel, etc.) but participation in the spring musical is not to be taken lightly. Rehearsals are every day after school beginning in mid-February through to the performance dates (May 1, 3, 4, 5, 9 & 10). Initially, most students will rehearse 1-2 days a week with larger roles rehearsing more often. As we get closer to the performance dates, we will have mandatory all-cast rehearsals.

We do charge a participation fee, but there is scholarship money available (so this should not be a deterrence to participating). It really takes a village to put this on, so we ask all parents to commit to volunteering in some capacity (there really is something for everyone to do: costumes, make-up, green room & dressing room supervision, ticket sales, publicity, concessions, etc.).

Thank you from the SOLT Sisters!

Dear Parents and Friends,

How can we thank you for your kindness and support in providing for us in so many ways through the giving tree this Christmas?  From toiletries and groceries to winter fleeces, books and goodies, we were so touched by your generosity.  May the Lord reward you and your families 100-fold!

As a house of formation with young women who are just taking their first steps in religious life, it was such a joy to see their astonishment at how cared for we are by all of you.  Please know that you are in our prayers daily, and that we feel very blessed to live and serve here at St. Alphonsus.  May your 2019 be filled with every grace and blessing!

Sincerely,

The SOLT Sisters
