MS Showcase 2020 'Another Op'nin, Another Show'
Harvey's annual Middle School Showcase lit up the Lasdon Theater stage Feb. 20 with "Another Op'nin, Another Show" featuring scenes and music from time-honored Broadway shows.
The show opened with the Cole Porter favorite (and name of the show) from "Kiss Me, Kate." High-energy musical numbers included "Bushel and a Peck" from "Guys and Dolls," the song "At the End of the Day" from "Les Misérables," "Do-Re-Mi" from "The Sound of Music," "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" from "The Lion King, "Hard Knock Life" from "Annie," and the closing number,"You Can't Stop the Beat" from "Hairspray."
The cast of 28 students in grades 6-8 performed 27 songs during the evening complete with choreography and breathed life into classic characters with their strong theatrical performances. Many weeks of practice and hard work throughout the winter term helped deliver an incredibly delightful evening for a smiling audience of family, friends, and faculty who tapped their feet and couldn't resist singing along!
The students and parents thank all the teachers involved for the extra time and hard work they put in to make the Middle School Showcase such an amazing experience for all involved.
Bravo to the cast: Anna Bellinson, Conrad Breede, Ryan Byrne, Natalie Delessio, Matthew Egelberg, Sonia Espitia, Riley Franck, Ellie Florin, Princess Golden, Christiana Greene, Iliana Hellinger, Charlie Hill, Peter Hill, Nora Jobe, Helena Kasarda, Helen Katis, Gillian Klares, Talya Langer, Maeve Lazzaro, Shelby McCaine, Eliza Morris, Matthew Rankin, Nicholas Ritenis, Gabriella Santiago, Meaghan Sullivan, Luca Vega, Riannah Wallach, and Alexa Williams.
