What is the Middle School Play?
Every spring, NDA’s Middle School (grades 7 & 8 and occasionally 6th grade) puts on a musical production. This year’s performance will be Mary Poppins, Jr.
Our Middle School play is directed by NDA’s very own gifted music teacher Mrs. Lori Wukmir (who came from the Twin Cities’ theater community) and sets are designed by our very talented band teacher (and professional set designer) Adam Bestler. Along with giving our middle schoolers a hands-on theatre experience, this opportunity empowers our students to step out of their comfort zone, helps to develop self confidence and builds communication skills. Inevitably, this experience also creates long-lasting friendships along the way! Parents, alumni and community members come together to create all aspects of the production, from building sets to painting scenes, creating props, putting together costumes, and transforming teenage faces into theatrical masterpieces.
The NDA Middle School Play TRULY is a treasured community event.
Join us in the NDA gym (transformed into a stunning theater) for the middle school performance of Mary Poppins, Jr.
Production dates are:
- Thursday March 12, 7:00pm

*Sadly, due to the rapid changes in recommendations from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health and the Archdiocese, we will be postponing our remaining performances of Mary Poppins Jr. at Notre Dame Academy. Please know that this decision is not being made lightly, however, based on current information, we do not want to put our students, patrons or staff in harm’s way.
