Due to the weather conditions,

McQuaid Jesuit will not presenting Nice Work If You Can Get It tonight.  Reserved or purchased tickets for Wednesday's performance will be honored at any performance. 

GevaTickets for the Geva Theatre Center Stage Door production of "Private Lives" featuring McQuaid students will go on sale Tuesday, February 14. Tickets for this one-night only performance on Monday, April 3 are $16 and may be purchased at the Geva Theatre Center box office, by phone, or online. Please note that a $6 per order fee is charged for tickets purchased online.

Once per season, Geva Theatre Center asks a local Rochester-area high school to partner with them on the exploration of a production; this year they’ve asked McQuaid Jesuit to produce their own version of Private Lives, for a performance that takes place on the Geva set of Private Lives under Geva’s lighting and sound design, and run by Geva’s professional crew. Curtain for the April 3rd performance is 7 p.m.

This past weekend high school seniors gathered at Nazareth College to compete in the Howard Hanson award for piano performance. This is sponsored by the Rochester Piano Teachers Guild (RPTG). Competition is very high, and all of the musicians are extremely talented. Senior Louis Laniak participated in this and at the end of two days of performances was one of eight students recognized as winners.

From the RPTG:

“The Howard Hanson Certificate of Merit is awarded annually by the Rochester Piano Teachers’ Guild to high school seniors who exhibit excellence in piano performance. This prestigious award is named in honor of Dr. Howard Hanson, renowned American composer, conductor, educator, and director of the Eastman School of Music from 1924 to 1964.”

Rehearsal Schedule

 

2 March 2017

To whom it might concern:

First, a heart-felt thank you to the cast, crew, musicians, set director, choreographer, vocal director, costumer, rehearsal pianist, each of you who have been faithfully coming to rehearsals, who have let us know if you weren’t going to be at rehearsal, who practiced what you learned, who memorized lines, character personalities, who gave up holidays and weekends to build, to paint, to learn music, who, overall, have been committed to helping us create a sparkling, energetic, and fantastic production. There are only two weeks remaining. There is still much to do, to rehearse, to re-shape, re-block, re-fit, etc. I am asking that all of us make a real commitment to these next two weeks. Beginning with this Saturday, might we all keep our focus, our energy, as well as our time and talent to bring this work to the stage on the 15th of this month, which is less than two weeks away!

Again, thank you for all you all have given thus far!

Andrew Boone
