Our Lady of Mercy’s Performing Arts staff is dedicated to nurturing a positive learning environment that cultivates creativity and offers opportunities to learn about music and theatre. Music and Theatre education will provide our students with the chance to experience art that reflects the world around us. Because of this, Mercy Girls develop a healthy respect, understanding, and appreciation for all of the arts and its unique potential to enrich their lives.
The Performing Arts Department provides ample opportunity for vocalists, instrumentalists and Theatre students to thrive in the classroom, as well as center stage in musical and dramatic productions. The recently renovated Dismas Center for the Performing Arts provides Mercy’s student performers with a state-of-the-art Mainstage, a Black Box Theatre, Music Room, and several Practice Rooms. We carefully prepare our student performers to pursue their artistic dreams at some of the country’s finest colleges and universities, as both majors and non-majors. A graduate of the Mercy Performing Arts program can take on any stage with confidence.
