Musical Theater

Experienced and novice performers alike have found their place on the Academy's stage, flourishing under the guidance of our director, Mrs. Lucia Cardona, who brings extensive performing experience to her work here. Together with music director Warren Helms, Mrs. Cardona forms the core of our musical theater's creative team. Mr. Helms comes to Mary Help with extensive experience as a faculty member at Julliard and the Manhattan School of Music as well as an assistant conductor and pianist for the Broadway production of Show Boat.
Other consulting professionals bring with them equally impressive credentials, having worked on the Broadway productions of Wicked, Mary Poppins, On the Twentieth Century, West Side Story, A Chorus Line, and the North American tour of Les Miserables. With such incredible backing, along with professional lighting and sound crews to set the stage, students consistently bring their scripts and librettos to life!
Auditions are held each year in the Fall for the Spring Musical with rehearsals beginning shortly thereafter. Please see below for information regarding our upcoming production as well as productions from prior years.

With a Caribbean tinged score, you follow the story of Ti Moune as she goes on her quest to prove that love is stronger than death. Once on This Island is a fairy tale celebration of love, hope, life and death.

"Our theater program has been an unforgettable and life-changing experience. I not only grew as an actress, but truly became a different person (and I don't mean my character!). My confidence has skyrocketed, and I've learned to be open to new things." Read More
