The Marian Mainstagers Announce 2016-17 Season
Last June, at the Marian Mainstagers Awards and International Thespian Society Induction Ceremony, officers were announced to guide the club through the 2016-17 season. Those officers are: President-Claire Paulson ’17; Vice-President- Samantha Hansen ’17; Secretary- Kevin Wang ’17; Dramaturg- Fionna Scamby ’17, and Historian- Maeve Walsh ’18.
During late August, the officers met with Mr. Flynn-Director and Advisor, and Mr. Kyle Kozlowski-Adult Technical Advisor to the Marian Mainstagers to select the productions for the upcoming season. After several hours of discussion, the choices were made and announced to the Marian Community during the opening days of school: Christmas on Broadway, a sure to entertain montage of favorite Broadway musicals, each of which contain a song about or relating to Christmas; The Hamlet Thrill-Ma-Geddon, a fast paced comic farce parody on Shakespeare’s Hamlet which will be the entry this year to the Massachusetts High School Drama Festival in March, and the timeless favorite, The Wizard of Oz for the spring musical in May.
Christmas on Broadway has been cast and will be presented on December 9th and 10th at 7:30pm and on December 11th at 3pm. All tickets are $10 in advance or at the door. The show will be directed and staged by Mr. Stephen Flynn, Director of Fine Arts; choreographed by Mrs. Kelly Kozlowski, with Claire Paulson ’17 as the Student Director, Samantha Hansen ’17 as the Associate Choreographer, Mr. Kyle Kozlowski as the Adult Technical Advisor and Mary Sherwin ’17 and Sofia Antonellis ’18 as Stage Manager and Assistant Stage Manager respectively.
We are very excited about this season, and will continue to update information as it occurs.
