Theatre

Each fall, Gwynedd Mercy Musical Theatre produces a full musical, which runs in November. This year, we were excited to produce Matilda the Musical!

  • Performers
    • First round auditions are by video and are due in the summer. A one-minute video of the song of your choosing is required. Callbacks take place in person and will include singing, dancing, and acting.
  • Stage Crew
    • It takes much more than a cast to put on a show—if you like to paint or construct, please consider being a member of Stage Crew.
  • The Booth Team
    • This is an opportunity to learn light and sound design and make sure those important aspects of the theatre run seamlessly.
