Last year at a parent meeting Dr. Russell announced that the play would be Hamlet. Groan. The longest, hardest play? Really? I told the kids, and Blaise said, "I feel sorry for the poor schmuck who has to play Hamlet!" Guess what Bud.
I hardly know how to write about it without sounding like an obnoxious stage mom. We knew Blaise was a good actor... another day, another Shakespeare role... He was outstanding! The 17 year old WAS Hamlet. He played it brilliantly. A triumph in his senior year. We are so proud of him.
As usual, lots of video not many pictures. Hopefully more photos will surface. Regina had several minor roles, including lines, and did a fantastic job. Dominic was an extra in nearly every scene. His one line, "murder!' was beautifully executed. Pardon the pun.
Our theater was beautifully suited to Shakespeare, such a treat to perform there!
Regina, far right, as Bernardo

spoiler alert: everyone dies
the whole cast did an outstanding job, these are wonderful and talented kids!
The Old St. Patrick Choir (Blaise and Regina) sang Arvo Part's St. John's Passion. They did a beautiful job with a very hard piece.
Palm Sunday St. A's schola concert. This is the only picture I took. You can see Blasie still smiling there after singing two concerts and Palm Sunday Mass.
Fun at the Lugnuts opener
Here we have the rare Orange Cat Tree, infrequently seen in full bloom.
The little girls enjoy being at the theater during tech week as much as I do. While we were right there,I took them out for some fun at the natural history museum and a walking tour of U of M's campus.
