All-Arts Day - Mercy High School

Personal Focus. Global Perspective. Mercy Changes Everything.

All-Arts Day

Come see what makes the Arts at Mercy so Magical!

We are looking for passionate artists in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade to come explore the Arts at Mercy and be a part of our Fall Production, "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Students will have the opportunity to explore Visual Arts, Dance, and Theater Arts with an invitation to join us on stage Sunday, November 21, 2021 alongside our current Mercy actresses. For students interested in the Arts who thrive behind the scenes and not on stage, we invite them to work alongside our Mercy Girls learning the ropes of stage management, costume creation, and theater tech. 

Please note: While we are excited to bring your daughters onto our campus for this unique and immersive experience, we are still following Covid-19 Protocols to keep our community safe. Masks are required on Mercy's campus at all times unless outdoors. We will also be unable to offer Music or Singing classes this year at our All Arts Day, though expect to be able to offer it in the future. Thank you for your understanding.
