The Theatre Program creates opportunities for the student to develop her communication and interpretive skills as actor, speaker and technician, and to demonstrate her artistic and personal growth through performance of these skills. Individuals may develop their skills while assuming responsibility and commitment to the larger community.

Program Goals

  • To develop public speaking skills.
  • To apply critical thinking skills through analysis of the theatre and performance.
  • To enhance awareness of the student's world and her relationship to it through its in-depth character study.
  • To develop self-confidence and poise.
  • To create an environment of community in which all students feel responsible to the group as a whole.

MMc & BR Band/Orchestra Nashville Trip

Mother McAuley & Brother Rice Band and Orchestra students traveled to Nashville over Spring Break for an incredible trip full of music.

Our Mighty Macs visited the Grand Ole Opry, recorded at RCA Studio B (the same studio used by Elvis, Dolly Parton, Chet Atkins, and so much more), performed at the National Museum of African American Music, saw Elvis Presley's Piano, and even spotted a celebrity along the way!

Southside Irish Parade

Our Mighty Macs marched in both the Southside Irish Parade and the Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade during St. Patrick's Day Weekend! The parades made us proud to celebrate McAuley's Irish Heritage and the Chicago community that we've been a part of for more than 175 years. Special thanks to the BRMM Band and all of our alumnae who joined us!
