Join us at our first ever Alumni Weekend on May 30, 2020!
Come eat, drink and be merry while reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. The evening will include reunions for six graduating classes, a Back-à-Dos alumni cabaret performance for all alumni, and a post-show reception for all alumni.
40 Years of Back à Dos
Forty years ago, in 1979-80, nudged by her daughter Margaret (then a student at the school), Martha Stookey directed a first show, which would become the foundation of a new theater program at the French American school. From this came additional productions, and then a few years later, a series of one acts, some in English some in French, performed “Back to Back”… Well, in keeping with our French-American origins, they were performed “Back à Dos” (leading to the current name of our company).
