Talk about March Madness!There’s a lot happening at John Bapst this month! So much, in fact, that we decided that we should send a list to everyone.
Here are the highlights which everyone should be marking on the calendar:

The spring musical, “All Shook Up”, takes the stage in Sekera Auditorium. Tickets are $5. Elvis meets Shakespeare – it’s not to be missed!
The songs of Elvis Presley form the backdrop for this musical about a mysterious, leather-jacketed stranger who shakes up a small Midwestern town in the 1950s. Librettist Joe DiPietro’s tale of the cross-dressing, mistaken identity and romance that ensue was inspired by Twelfth Night and other Shakespearean comedies.
