The Final Bow in The Perry Family Auditorium
Ms. Amanda Bryer, Director of Alumni Programs

For decades, The Perry Family Auditorium has been the home for so many wonderful productions at Cape Henry Collegiate.

The 2022 spring season in our Performing Arts Department was especially joyful after the auditorium sat empty as we navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. Rousing final performances were a fitting way to say goodbye to this space as CHC makes way for the Center for Innovation and Performing Arts. 

In late April, students from Lower, Middle and Upper School took to the stage in a riveting performance of “SpongeBob The Musical.” The sets were vibrant and built with immense execution and the talent was top notch. It was a magical night that meant so much to everyone at Cape Henry Collegiate.  

“SpongeBob was definitely the best musical [...] because it was just so fun,” said Rebecca McSweeney ‘22, who played the lead role as SpongeBob. “There wasn’t a boring moment in rehearsals or backstage at the performances.” 

A well-deserved standing ovation resounded in The Perry Family Auditorium as the cast waved goodbye from the stage for the last time. CHC’s Dance Department followed just a few weeks later, taking their final bow on this particular stage. 

“It was truly a bittersweet moment. Some of these dancers have been dancing on this stage since the tender age of three,” said Dance Director Mrs. Ericka Ricks. “Although we are very eager and excited about what is to come, we will never forget all the amazing memories that were created in that space.” 

The Perry Family Auditorium has been home to so many wonderful performances over the years. The spring performance season by the Cape Henry Collegiate Arts Department was a wonderful way to send the theater out in style!  Bravo!
