This year’s Junior School musical production,Cinderella, was both magical and dazzling. A stellar cast of twenty-four students from Grades 7 to 9 entertained audiences with their jubilant singing, dancing and stunning stage effects.
It was truly magical to watch the beggar transformed into the luminescent fairy godmother and Cinderella’s charred rags magically become a stunning ball gown. Mice were transformed into horses, a pumpkin into a chariot and audiences into fairy tale believers.
There were the pitch-perfect singing performances, the well-timed delivery of hilarious punch lines, and the impressive group choreography. It was a show for all ages and the jubilant dancing of the young audience children during intermission on opening night captured the spirit that everyone was feeling.
Special thanks are extended to each member of the cast and crew, our choreographer,Grace Gallant, the set designers and the many hands that made this show such a success. It was tremendous to see so many student volunteers giving their time. I offer a standing ovation to our graduating Grade 9 performers who made this production so triumphant. I know that, though they will be leaving the Junior School, they will continue to share their talents as mentors to our younger thespians. Hats off to our director Ms. Toven MacLean for her exceptional abilities in putting this show together and toMs. Karlee Sinclairfor her stage assistance.Cinderellawill provide wonderful memories for years to come for so many of our students. Bravo!
