Who
Will remember
You?
Or what
You
Have done
Here
In this dark place?
In this obscure
Black cave?

Will they recognize
You
At the grocery?
The mall?
It’s not likely
To happen.
History
Is stingy
With fame.

Trillions
Have lived,
Died.
Everywhere.
Pole to pole.
How few
Are mentioned
By name
In the book?

And yet
Together 
You struck
Flint and steel
To enlighten
The deep darkness
And maybe a heart
Or two.

They will not 
Remember
You,
But they might
The time
You spent
On stage
Revealing
The lonely places
Where they
Did
Their life’s work.
  

  
THEY NEVER MADE IT BIG!
A NEW PLAY BY JOHN J. CAROSELLA
ORIGINAL MUSIC & LYRICS BY LAUREN CONDON


The Cast
Vocalist/Guitarist……Lauren Condon
David……David Seremet
John……John Carosella

  ​​

But always, through it all…through the sicknesses and the family tragedies and national traumas and everything else, there was the theatre.  We came together. We rehearsed and made a show.  We created something from almost nothing.  Dead words on a page and we made them alive and made people laugh with them and cry.  And we got through all of it.  What was good the theatre made better and what was bad the theatre made better. (John, "They Never Made It Big")

  You never said you loved me.  In the bed.  Never once in all those fifty two years, you never looked at me and said “Aggie, I love you.”  Not once.  Not even when we got old and all’s we did was keep each other warm in the wintertime.

Don't I have enough pain? Isn't it hard enough being nobody? Isn't it tough enough that everybody looks at me like I'm a broken trashbag? Where do I fit in? Where can I go and not have anybody on my back? At school the teachers are giving this test and that paper and don't do this and don't do that. Then I come home and you always find something that I didn't do and I'm never good enough.  ​(Josh, "Bang Bang You're Dead")​​

SOMETIMES THE HEART SINGS  a new play by John J. Carosella
ORIGNAL MUSICALSCORING BY AARON GRAY


  
When I was a boy…when I had a family…my mother would always sing Silent Night to me…she had such a sweet voice…She used to sing it to me and my brother and my two sisters…every Christmas eve.  It would get dark outside and mom and dad would gather us kids around our little tree.  We weren’t very well off and we didn’t have much, but we were little and we didn’t know how much we didn’t have.  We thought we had everything in the world, because we had a Christmas tree…with lights on it.  Every color you can imagine…and they twinkled like the stars on a very cold night.  And my father sat across from us and he told us it was time to go to bed, but…and he made that word sound so…”full of promise.”  But…he would say…” If you pull the covers up to your chins and if you close your eyes tight and think about the very first Christmas, something special will happen during the night!”  That’s when my mother would start singing.  She sang it all the way through first and then we all sang it and we went to our beds.  And sure enough.  Every Christmas morning there would be presents for each of us under the tree in the morning.  It’s funny.  I don’t remember a single one of those little presents, but I remember us all singing that song….  (Mr. Donaldson, "Sometimes the Heart Sings")

CELIBACY   A New Play by John J. Carosell
Director:  John Carosella   Stage Manager Cori Beredino   Assistant Stage Manager Krystal Modecki

THE CAST
David Seremet as Fr. Joe Connolly
Tom Sarp as Fr. Jeremy Talbot

Maybe I am a fool!  I’m going to have a hangover tomorrow morning, but I know this.  I’m going to drag my sorry ass out of bed and breathe those beautiful words over the bread and wine.  Is that foolish, do you think?  And I’m going to stand there and say “The Body of Christ” to whoever comes to the altar.  The lost, the lonely, the exuberant, the joyful, the sad, the old, young, sick, all of them who come shuffling up the aisle.  They want life, Jeremy, and they bring their weary selves to the altar so that what I hold in these hands can transform whatever they bring into eternal life.  Spiritual life!  In my hands.  Yes, maybe I am a fool.  But that’s what I do and that’s who I’ve become.  And I’m satisfied.  I’m more than satisfied.  And all I had to do was bring the gift of my sexuality and let it be transformed into something sacred.

When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. To seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”  (Cervantes, Man of La Mancha)

And so we end where we began
You are there and here I stand
I hope you had a merry romp
As lovers here did storm and stomp
But if we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
Nothing really, but a dream,
that pleasantly did enthrall.
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.
(Puck, A Midsummer Night's Dream)

 The asylum? I grew up in such an asylum, the State Alms House. Rats? Why, my brother Jimmy and I used to play with the rats because we didn't have any toys. Maybe you'd like to know what Helen will find there, not on visiting days. One ward was full of the old women. Crippled, blind, most of them dying, but even if what they had was catching, there was nowhere else to move them. That's where they put us. Then there were younger ones across the hall, prostitutes mostly, with TB and epileptic fits. And some of the kind that keep after other girls, especially the young ones. And some were just insane. Some had the DTs. Then there were girls in another ward to have babies they didn't want. They started at thirteen, fourteen. They left afterwards, but the babies stayed. We played with them, too. There were a lot of them, with sores all over from diseases you're not supposed to talk about.  (Annie Sullivan, The Miracle Worker)

I didn't go to the moon, I went much further - for time is the longest distance between places. Not long after that I was fired for writing a poem on the lid of a shoebox.  I left Saint Louis. I descended the step of this fire-escape for a last time and followed, from then on, in my father's footsteps, attempting to find in motion what was lost in space - I travelled around a great deal. The cities swept about me like dead leaves, leaves that were brightly coloured but tom away from the branches.
I would have stopped, but I was pursued by something.  It always came upon me unawares, taking me altogether by surprise. Perhaps it was a familiar bit of music. Perhaps it was only a piece of transparent glass. Perhaps I am walking along a street at night, in some strange city, before I have found companions. I pass the lighted window of a shop where perfume is sold. The window is filled with pieces of coloured glass, tiny transparent bottles in delicate colours, like bits of a shattered rainbow.  Then all at once my sister touches my shoulder. I turn around and look into her eyes ... Oh, Laura, Laura, I tried to leave you behind me, but I am more faithful than I intended to be !  I reach for a cigarette, I cross the street, I run into the movies or a bar, I buy a drink, I speak to the nearest stranger -anything that can blow your candles out !
- for nowadays the world is lit by lightning ! Blow out your candles, Laura - and so good-bye.  (Tom, The Glass Menagerie)

CONFESSIONS OF LOST GIRLS  
A Compilation of Experiences—both Real and Fictional
  
WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY
ADELPHOI RESIDENTS:
Deni
Jen
Joe
Kayshae
Melissa
Tay
 
Additional Contributions by: 
Aliya, Nikki, &  Pareis

NOTE:  The images on "Confessions of Lost Girls" are not

photos chosen from Internet sites.

  So, when they picked me up, I cried out loud.  I cried and cried and couldn’t stop crying.  They thought I was crying because I got caught again, but that wasn’t it.  Getting caught didn’t matter.  I was crying because of what happened to me…all the way back then.  I thought it was my fault what they did.  I blamed myself and did all kind of bad stuff just to get myself punished. I guess crying was my way to say I was sorry.  But nobody wants to hear you’re sorry.  Just call her a bad girl.  Label her and forget about her.  They don’t know me.  None of them know me.  They’re not even close.  (Kayshae, "Confessions of Lost Girls")
  
  
  

THE CAST/PLAYWRIGHTS
  
Denise is seventeen years old and a Virgo.  She is from Harrisburg, PA.  Growing up, she moved around a lot, but has always retained a very serious interest in both music and writing.  Those have become her biggest outlets.  Denise would like to thank her mother and father as well as her step mother Rachael and her brothers and sisters for all of their support throughout all of her trials.

Jen is fifteen years old.  She loves mac ‘n’ cheese.

Joe (Jolene) is sixteen years old and she is from Philadelphia, PA.  She arrived at Adelphoi in early August and she wants to study to be a lawyer or train to be a boxer.  She is thankful to Missy Hoak and John Carosella for making her stay here a little more tolerable (LOL).  She had fun making this play and said that it helped the group get to know each other better.

Kayshae is from Germantown in Philadelphia PA.  She appreciates her foster mother Deborah for being a mom to her.  She also thanks her father Mark for not being a stereotype and fighting to stay in her life.  “I love  you both and I thank all the people who affected my life, good or bad, because they make me the person I am today and I’m glad to be that person.”   Kayshae has a wide range of interests and currently wants to study to be a photographer, a music producer, or a veterinarian.  Her favorite foods are Cap’n Crunch cereal and hot Cheetos.

Melissa Ann is sixteen years old and she is from North Philly.  Born on September 5, she is a Virgo who has four brothers and two sisters. She wants to study to become a Registered Nurse (R.N.).

Tay is fifteen years old and from Pittsburgh.  She has six brothers and is the only girl in the family.  She is currently in foster care.  She is a Pisces and wants to become a therapist.


"Confessions of Lost Girls" was a special, one-night-only presentation.  The Latrobe Art Center, Adelphoi Village and the Ketterer Charter School joined The Cabaret Theatre to present the work of these young ladies on November 3, 2016 at The Latrobe Art Center:  Gallery Three.

Before
Anyone is disqualified
And before
Procedings turn snide
And contestants turn nasty
I soberly confide
In the moment before the bee
Claims its first catastrophe
I love what I see
Kids acting innocently
It's my favorite moment of the bee
Rona's favorite moment of the bee  (Rona, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee)

The Stranger:  A Christmas Fantasy
by John Carosella

  
                                                                  
You think you can’t end up like this?  Is that what you think, little girls?  Well, think again.  You think you’re safe?  Your father’s got a good job?  Your mother maybe, too?  Well, you listen real close.  No matter how rich, everybody’s just one good tragedy away from livin’ in the streets or in somebody’s basement. It don’t take much.  You lose your job, you get sick, you have an accident!  The business goes bust.  Lots of stuff can happen and when it happens, you wind up takin’ shelter wherever you can find it. And you learn a lot.  You learn you don’t need but one pair of shoes to get by. A little food.  And me?  As long as I got those few things and my book, I know I can get by.  I know I’ll be OK.
(The Stranger:  from "The Stranger," Christmas 2017
