- About MMS
Enduring 2600 years as one of the world's most widely-read classics, Ramayana! tells the story of Prince Ram, who, banished from his kingdom, leaves with his true love Sita and brother Lakshman to find a new home.
Colorful, education and very entertaining - the reviews are in, and "Journey to India," the elementary school's Cultural Awareness performance, was a rousing success! Our talented young studentsdid an amazing job of bring their learning on India's culture, history and stories to life onstage.
MMS parent Maureen Pramanik is offering her amazing Cultural Awareness performance photos available free of charge to MMS families.
Congratulations to all for completing the audition process. You’ve done your part; hopefully you can acknowledge your growth and successes within the process. Now comes the next step: casting of the play. Casting is challenging for both performers and directors. For some, this will not be a big issue, while others may experience disappointment. The key is finding a way to move forward positively. Most have heard the statement before - every role is pivotally important - and while a bit of a cliché, it is proven true.

MyrvoldsTheatreNotes.com, 1/26/2013, "Fiddler on the Roof at Mount Madonna School," by Paul Myrvold. Read his review: http://www.myrvoldstheatrenotes.com/Reviews/Entries/2013/1/26_Fiddler_on...
“Try to hold still,” urges a sophomore girl sitting across from a classmate, as she carefully wipes a Vaseline ribbon along her friend’s hairline, framing her face with a shiny outline. Next, she begins placing wet, pre-cut strips of a material resembling cloth bandages or mummy wrappings inside the shiny perimeter, across her friend’s forehead and around her eyes, nose and mouth.
