As part of the effort to bring theatre back to Newman University, the university launched campaigns for alumnae of Sacred Heart Academy and alumni of Sacred Heart College. The campaigns raised $60,000 by honoring three women who were instrumental to the program’s success in years past – speech teacher Ambrosine Comerford, ASC and music teacher Salome Herman, ASC at Sacred Heart Academy, and drama teacher Lillian (Sister Theophane) Taylor at Sacred Heart College.
To cap off the campaigns, a room in the theatre area of the De Mattias Fine Arts Center will be dedicated to each of the three women.
The dedication of the Sister Ambrosine Comerford, ASC Scene Shop and the Sister Salome Herman, ASC Rehearsal Hall is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Oct. 14 in the De Mattias Fine Arts Center. Dedication of the Lillian Taylor Gathering Space & Conference Center will be at 1 p.m., Nov. 11 in the Fine Arts Center, followed by the theatre production Something’s Afoot at 2 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
