Mount Madonna School
You're invited to the high school production of "13" the musical!
Date: Every day (Jan 25-Jan 27) from 7:00pm to 9:30pm
Ages: All Admission Fees: $10-$15

Do you remember turning 13: the anticipation, angst and joy of wanting to 'fit in' and 'stand out'? On January 25-27, Mount Madonna School (MMS) will present its high school production of 13, a story about growing up and finding one's place in the world.

 

The story concerns young Evan Goldman, about to turn thirteen, suddenly swept from his comfortable New York City life to a Midwest town following his parents' divorce. In his subsequent search for enough "cool" kids to attend his Bar Mitzvah, Evan faces important decisions about what he is willing to sacrifice to gain popularity.

 

On January 25 at 7:00pm, and January 26-27 at 2:00pm, students will take the stage for performances at the Mount Madonna's Hawks' Nest Theater. Tickets are on sale now at mms-13.brownpapertickets.com. Adults are $15; 18 and under are $10. All seats are reserved.

Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School
How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out
Date: Every Mon (Oct 29-Apr 29)
Ages: Family Admission Fees: FREE

Shadow Day

A shadow day is an excellent way to experience a day at Kirby and to see if our school is a good fit for your student. We will pair your student with a host who has similar interests. They will spend the day together, attending classes, hanging out with other Kirby students, and enjoying lunch with friends in the renowned Kirby Café.

 

How it works:

  • Monday is our preferred shadow day because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be scheduled for any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen by our executive chef, Tracy Landry.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call (831) 423-0658 ×202, email admissions@kirby.org, or use the Contact Us link below.
