Drama – Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Thank you to all that came to see us in person, donated money for tickets, and provided much support, warmth and recognition to our cast and crew.

After, more than a year of remote learning and no live performances our students and our crew – mostly new to their roles –  with much dedication and commitment brought to life this play during their 3-day run in Novemeber. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the parent support on and off the stage, and the monetary and community support we have received and that has allowed us to make this, our first return to a physical stage possible and successful. 

We have been lucky enough to gain support from the unlikeliest places that allowed out to simulcast during our first performance.  

You can view the entire play again if you so choose on the Performing Arts YT channel.
