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.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
