TO THE CAST AND CREW
AND ALL OF YOU!
I know, I know – we say it every year, but every year it’s true…this year’s musical was THE BEST EVER! The panoramic picture above is as vast as the talent that went into the amazing production of “In the Heights” – which is why we have to split the picture in half!
As our way of thanking you, we’re bringing you the pictures below of our talented Art students working on the “Abuela” gate, and the finished product as it appeared in the show! We’re all familiar with the fabulous posters that our Art students produce for the school’s productions, but we’re pretty sure that this is the first time the art produced by the students was actually a plot point in the musical!
Speaking of firsts, if you read the the cast biographies in the Playbill you may have noticed that for many of the students this was their first time appearing in the school musical. We’re very proud of that because it speaks to the essence of what we, as a PA and as a school, are about – opportunities that are open to everyone. Making the students’ dreams a reality would not have been possible without the dedication, passion and patience of many people – all of whom, we hope, are thanked in the Playbill. This was the second year that the PA stepped in to produce the musical (we’re looking at you, Chris Denham) with the assistance this year of our phenomenal AP of Drama and Tech Sandy Faison as co-producer, and with the amazing Harry Shifman as director. And, of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of our terrific parents, who nurture the talents of our children and volunteer for the endless (but not, we hope, thankless) tasks, and who are the best audience ever!
