This year’s junior high production will be Shrek the Musical.  Based off of the hit movie series, the musical has catchy songs and some new plot details, but remains true to the story everyone knows and loves.  With so many fun characters, all junior high members who want to be involved in the drama department are encouraged to audition.

To wrap up the school year, the senior high’s spring musical will be The Drowsy Chaperone.  Blasting back to the 1920’s, this musical is about a man who, while listening to the show’s record, recounts the memories of his favorite Broadway musical.   As he tells the story, the show transforms around him, just like a show within a show.  This musical promises to be fun and entertaining.
