Thoroughly Modern Millie

  The musical of the sesquicentenary was a roaring success for the students and staff of Rosebank College.  In the high-spirited musical Thoroughly Modern Millie, audiences journeyed to New York as they joined small-town girl Millie in her quest to marry for wealth, not love – a thoroughly modern goal of the times! The production showcased the talents of over 180 students ranging from actors, dancers, musicians, costume and set designers, hair and make-up assistants, sound, lighting and back stage crew. Musical producer Ms Elise McKenzie is especially in awe of the students involved. “It has been great to see students grow through the years of Musicals at Rosebank College.

This personally touched me because I relate in a way that I have such high expectations for myself and want to achieve the best I can.  Once this part of the Mass had concluded we gathered outside the new building to bless the statue of Mother Scholastica.   Overall this experience was a wonderful opportunity for our College community to connect and celebrate....
