Drama and Music

The dramatic arts begin at Monte Cassino in our four-year-old program, where each class performs a mini-opera based on a famous fairy tale or children’s story, such as The Three Billy Goats Gruff or The Three Little Pigs.  Students will perform various seasonal shows at each grade level, including Christmas, Veterans’ Day, Mothers’ Day and Halloween. 

The Middle School provides students with chances to perform classic musicals such as Annie and Oklahoma, as well as more modern options, like High School Musical.  Students at the middle school level are also given opportunities to learn about the behind scenes aspects of productions, including lighting, sound and set design.

Beyond their experiences in musicals and various performances, all Monte Cassino students have access to classes that teach basic vocal and singing techniques and prepare students for religious celebrations or other community events.
