Mercy students love working with Miss Vickie McHale to create and put on plays throughout the course of the year. Every student involved has a role to learn and perform. Our two biggest shows are the Living Stations around Easter, and the Christmas Show in December.
The Christmas Show
The Christmas Show is our most anticipated event of the school year. This annual performance is our gift to the Mercy community as a thank you for everything people do for our school and our students. The Christmas Show, which is held in our auditorium and is free for all attendees, is typically held on the Thursday and Friday during the second week of December. (The Thursday show is open to schools and Mercy donors, while the Friday show is open to family members of Mercy students, children in Pre-K and adults in the Adult Program.)
Each year, Miss Vickie, our teacher in Room 7, creates the theme and the story for the show, which always culminates with the reason for the Christmas season; the gift of the Baby Jesus. Production begins over Thanksgiving break with the help of many volunteers, and the students then start rehearsals after the break and right up to the first show.
At Mercy, the Easter season gives all of us time to remember Jesus’ crucifixion and celebrate His resurrection. The students and Pre-K students do more than just remember: They help bring in this holy season by performing a Living Stations of the Cross. Students take on all the key roles and re-enact each step of Jesus’ road to Calvary up through His rising from the dead.
The Mercy family is invited to come and celebrate Living Stations with us.
