Wizard of Oz Spring Musical Delights
This year’s spring musical production, The Wizard of Oz, was a tremendous success, drawing praise across the board for performance and technical presentation. The show involved a particularly large cast as many sixth grade students were casted as munchkins along side their high school friends.
“I am incredibly proud of and humbled by the immense student talent that was displayed throughout the production process in design, construction, and performance and am grateful for all who came out to support the show,” said director and Fine Arts Department Chair Teresa McGrath. “The students were overwhelmed by the support and encouragement they received from the school community.”
“It was one of the more enjoyable shows I’ve seen in all my years here,” said Headmaster Kiser. “Perfectly cast, with great singing, music, and dancing. All the parent involvement with sets and costumes was impressive too! All in all, a weekend to be justly proud of the SJCS arts program, not to mention a fitting final show for all the seniors.”
Special thanks to Marjorie Malphrus (orchestra), Tami Kiser (dance choreography), and Angela Hayes (chorus) for their excellent work!
