Published on Nov 2, 2022

Alverno Heights Academy Upper School is proud to present their fall play “Middletown” on Thursday, November 3; Friday, November 4, and Saturday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sierra Madre Playhouse in Sierra Madre.

“Middletown” by Will Ono is a deeply moving and funny play exploring the universe of a small American town. Mary Swanson just moved to Middletown. About to have her first child, she is eager to enjoy the neighbourly bonds a small town promises. But life in Middletown is complicated: neighbors are near strangers and moments of connection are fleeting. “Middletown” is a playful, poignant portrait of a town with two lives, one ordinary and visible, the other epic and mysterious.

The main cast of “Middletown” includes senior Julia Divers as Mrs. Swanson; senior Maile Lara as John Dodge; senior Bella Villa as the cop; senior Emily Mosseri as the mechanic; senior Minta Sloan as the librarian; sophomore Julie Tardino as the sweetheart; senior Kaitlyn Lopez as the female doctor; senior Kiera Dean as a tourist/male doctor; junior Alex Fontanella as public speaker/female tourist; senior Makayla Sandoval as tour guide/aunt; junior Karyme Morales as freelancer/attendant; sophomore Mya Nicoletti as ground control/attendant 1; sophomore Jules Tessier as a landscaper; frosh Anna Sawran as a townsperson; frosh Jax Rewers as Greg/janitor; and sophomore Yui Hisanaga as Susan/theatre attendee.

Presale tickets to “Middletown” may be purchased from the Alverno Front Office for $15 and at the door at the Sierra Madre Playhouse on Thursday and Friday night.

Alverno Heights Academy is located at 200 North Michillinda Avenue in Sierra Madre and the Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at 87 W. Sierra Madre Boulevard in Sierra Madre.

About Alverno Heights Academy

Alverno Heights Academy is an independent, progressive Catholic school for girls and boys in grades TK-8 and a college preparatory school for girls in grades 9-12. Located on the property of the former Barlow Estate in Sierra Madre, California, Alverno Heights Academy was founded in 1960 by the Sisters of St. Francis who sought to create an environment in the San Gabriel Valley where students could become informed and knowledgeable persons. Later renamed Alverno High School and sponsored by the Immaculate Heart Community, Alverno’s program—academic, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and physical—has been shaped by the staff, trustees, and students. Alverno Heights Academy Upper School is committed to its mission by encouraging each of their young women to be who they imagine. For more information about Alverno Heights Academy, please visit
