Excitement is in the air as students help behind the scenes with props and other aspects of the school’s musical this year, Cinderella. Many students have been working very hard and have been making substantial progress in school and after school to get props and other items finished in time for performances March 22-25.
“I feel really excited to be able to help out with the musical for two reasons: it brings a bunch of students and teachers together to create something so amazing and because of it being the school’s first musical, that I get to be a part of it,” says Erial Sparks, who has helped with painting the fountain, the royal gardens, and the pumpkin patch.
Cameron Hoak agreed.
“I really regret not trying out for the musical, but I’m glad I can still help out and be involved,” Hoak said. “I’m excited to be helping out, and I’ve always wanted to be involved in something like this.”
Hoak has assisted in painting the fountain and with grass and with the royal garden.
Maitlyn Fronczek, who has helped work on the fountain, loves being involved with the making of props.
“I feel like I’m doing something good,” says Fronczek. “I like being a part of something that is so special.”
Fronczek has helped with the building of the royal fountain so far, and would love to get more involved with helping.
Teachers like Mr. Larry Ansell, have also gotten involved with helping behind the scenes. Mr. Ansell has put in a substantial amount of effort into building the fountain. He has worked the hardest to bring it together and has taken much time to work on it.
Students have gotten very progressive behind the scenes and are on good track to getting everything finished for the musical. Students have even done fundraisers and sales at school to get as much money as they can to make this first musical very successful.
