Richie Bernache ('16) is featured as the Cowardly Lion in the Playhouse Junior production of THE WIZARD OF OZ this summer. Playhouse Jr. is part of the summer offerings at Saint Michael's Playhouse, our Equity theatre in residence (www.saintmichaelsplayhouse.com). The Playhouse gives Saint Michael's students a rare opportunity for a liberal arts college -- students can apply to work as summer interns and gain experience in technical theatre, arts administration, live on campus, and get paid for the internship. SMC students may audition for acting roles in the Equity productions every winter and are frequently cast in leading roles. The wonderful costumes in OZ are courtesy of another SMC Theatre Major, Anna Maria Forger ('17).
