The cast, which has been rehearsing since the fall is excited about having the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience.

“I wanted the cast to have a true theater experience,” musical director Shelly Thompson said. “I just did not want to do all of the rehearsals and have the kids perform in front of an empty auditorium.” 

Tickets cost $8 and will go on sale in May. Full details will be announced at a later date.
