St. Aloysius School in Pottstown will present the children’s musical “The Castaways” May 2 at 7 p.m. at Pope John Paul II High School, Royersford.
Directed by Kim Slawecki and written by Jill and Michael Gallina, the play is grounded in historical fact and delivered through flashbacks that reveal the struggles of immigrant children on the streets of New York City in the early 1900s.
Their poignant stories remind the performers and the audience that “united in one loving chain” we can care for those in need.
A portion of the proceeds from the performance will be donated to the St. Francis-St. Joseph Homes for Children, an agency run by Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The agency provides campus and community-based residential treament in group homes in Bensalem and Philadelphia for dependent, neglected, delinquent and emotionally troubled boys and girls.
