Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.

Tomorrow night our Advanced Theater Class takes the stage for their showcase titles, “Extra! Extra!” Each student in this class has written their own piece or adapted a piece. There is dancing, non-linear surrealism, drama and so much more. Each piece has been cast and directed by our very own Alverno students. It’s a one of a kind show you won’t wanna miss.

Last year Penelope Cruz, Ricky Martin and many others spent their days at the Villa filming ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ and tonight the show won a Golden Globe! The shows team was honored with the award for Best Limited TV Series. Last year another movie filmed at Alverno, Lady Bird, won the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture for a Musical or Comedy. It looks like Alverno and the Villa are a good luck charm in the film & TV industry! Congratulations to ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace,’ we are thrilled to have hosted your cast & crew! #goldenglobes2019 #villadelsoldoro #alvernovilla
