Rave Reviews for The Dining Room and the Georgia M. Vlahos Performing Arts Studio
Bravo to the cast and crew of The Dining Room by AJ Gurney, and our esteemed teacher-director Lauren Rosi. Family and friends enjoyed the fall play’s three sold out performances featuring nine outstanding student actors this fall. Their stellar individual and collective performances were matched by the beauty of their new performance space—the Georgia M. Vlahos Performing Arts Studio.
Many thanks to the family of Georgia Vlahos; to the generous donors at last year's Crab Feed; to contributors to our crowd funding campaign this fall; and to the HEDCO Foundation. With your help, we successfully transformed a classroom in Marianist Hall into SJND's first on-campus performance space. At each performance this fall, students, staff, family and friends walked into the new space exclaiming, "Wow! How did they do that?" and left sharing similar exclamations about the cast and crew.
With spring just around the corner, preparations are already underway for the spring musical, The Wedding Singer. And the Georgia M. Vlahos Performing Arts Center will serve as an excellent rehearsal space for it and as a hub for many more creative student performances in the future.
