Mount Saint Dominic Academy is christening its new stage this weekend with a performance of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes”. And in its large cast are several names from Verona that you might recognize.

Alexa Terravecchio is playing one of the angels who serve as backup singers to the play’s central character, Reno Sweeney, an evangelist turned nightclub singer. Lillian Posner is part of the ensemble and Michael Restaino is playing the gangster Moonface Martin, who is hiding out on the ship on which the play is set disguised as a minister. No, the Mount is still an all-girls school. The gentlemen of the cast come from several other area schools, including West Essex, James Caldwell and Glen Ridge high schools; Saint Peter’s Prep, Trinity Academy, Seton Hall Prep and DePaul Catholic High School.

The show is being performed Friday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Mount’s new Doris M. Byrne Performing Arts Center. The tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 students and seniors.

The Doris M. Byrne Performing Arts Center, built inside the Mount’s long-time gym and auditorium and named for a 1941 graduate, is to be the linchpin of an expanding program for performing and visual arts at Mount Saint Dominic. You can learn more about it, and the Mount’s Arts Council, here.
