Recent Graduate Creates Permanent Celebration of Drama Club History

Bishop Carroll has a proud history in drama performances, including both plays and musicals.  In recent years, Drama Club members have been signing the wall between the boys and girls dressing rooms as a way to commemorate their participation and leave a lasting mark on a program that is such a big part of their high school experience.

Brand new alumna Anne Way, a four-year member of the Drama Club, felt strongly that all past drama participants should also be recognized for their countless hours of work—rehearsing, set-building, costumes, and all the other preparation that goes into a successful production.

Anne created the Drama Alumni Remembrance Wall, poring over yearbooks in the Alumni Office and creating posters for each show she found.  After cleaning, prepping and painting, she framed images of the shows and hung them.

To complete her project, Anne started collecting alumni signatures on the show posters and she hopes to grow the number of signatures over time. She’s looking for alumni who participated as actors, stage crew, student directors, or in some other role, to add their signature and join other alumni in commemorating their participation in BC Drama.

Anne displayed the posters she created at this spring’s performances of Once Upon a Mattress, collecting signatures from alumni who attended. Alumni were thrilled to have this opportunity to leave their mark on BC history and enjoyed reminiscing about their own performances.

Anne wants alumni to know that this project is ongoing.  Yearbooks only go back to 1969 and some shows were listed in the following year’s book if they were done in late Spring.  Dates may be incorrect.  A list of the shows and the yearbook dates as they were found are listed on the BC Arts page at www.facebook.com/BISHOPCARROLLARTS.

Anne is hopeful that alumni will send in any corrections or additions to the list.  You can post comments on the BC Arts Facebook page, or email Anne through her mom, Nancy, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thanks, Anne, for your hard work on this worthwhile project! We know you will continue to make BC proud!
