ACTS Auditions - Seussical

Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society will have auditions for their upcoming Spring musical, Seussical.  Auditions are Thursday, January 12 beginning at 3:00 pm.  For vocal auditions, students should prepare 16-32 bars of a song.  It does not have to be musical theatre, and it SHOULD NOT be from the show. Students should wear clothing that allows for movement as there will be a dance audition.  

Seussical is a musical about the characters from many of Dr. Seuss' works. These characters are not like us - they are much larger (and in some cases much smaller) than life. Please come prepared to think outside the box and experiment with these characters. The ONLY right answer is to be BIG.

For more information on Seussical click HERE.

From International Education Opportunities
At this time of year, Global Connections Homestay starts preparing for the arrival of international students who will begin classes at Carroll in the second semester.

Part of this process is readying host families and matching them with an enrolled student. Our number one request from families abroad is to have their child live with a member of the school community. Whether it be a teacher, coach, staff member, or especially a family with children attending the same school, this type of placement makes the family and student feel comfortable and safe.

Host families are paid a monthly stipend to offset costs, and we also provide a $300 gift to any referrals that result in a student placement. This gift is for current host families, or those that cannot host but know a family that can!

For more information or to apply, please email us at or call 215-259-4055.

We wish you and your family the best during the holiday season.

With gratitude,

The Global Connections Homestay Team
