Join Hanuman, the monkeys, Prince Rama and Prince Lakshmana, as they journey to Lanka in their quest to rescue Princess Sita in the 43rd Mount Madonna School (MMS) “Ramayana!”, a musical theater production adapted for modern audiences and replete with lively action, dazzling costumes, humor and universal life lessons.
“Ramayana!” returned to the stage to entertain audiences of all ages June 9-12, 2022.
Featuring a cast of nearly 200 student actors from Mount Madonna School and accompanied by an adult choir and musicians, Ramayana! features exciting action, stunning costumes and plenty of family humor.
The Ramayana! is an annual event in which the entire student body takes part. In the preschool years students may begin by taking part in the ever-popular forest animal scene. Gradually they work their way through various small parts as dancers, singers, monkeys, demons, and martial artists until they finally emerge in the lead roles in their high school years. Behind the scenes, a large supporting cast of parents, teachers, alumni and Mount Madonna Center staff take on the roles of prop makers, costumers, makeup artists, technicians, musicians, stage crew, and concessionaires. This makes the Ramayana! our largest school event of the year.
