Another Great Winter Showcase
Posted 01/30/2017 04:50PM

On Thursday, Feb. 16, the Lasdon Theater was transformed into Never Neverland and the cast of the Middle School Showcase invited the audience to ‘be their guests,’ opening the show with the musical invitation from Disney’s classic “Beauty and the Beast.” This was an appropriate beginning for a revue centered on fantasy and fairytales. The evening continued with retellings of stories like “Hansel and Gretel,” “Rumpelstiltskin” and Oscar Wilde’s “The Selfish Giant.” Directors Megan Taylor and Zachary Wright also included stories and myths from other countries and songs from popular Broadway musicals.

Not only did the students perform but they also worked on the scenery and other technical elements for the production under the guidance of teachers Brittany Merola and Christina Alexander. The collaboration extended to the entire staff and student body of the Middle School.

In the gallery outside of the theater, the faculty hosted a curriculum fair before and after the show. This celebration of the academic successes of the students included interactive computers programs, robots, class work and art projects that were all on display in the gallery. Parents had the opportunity to talk with students and teachers about the exciting things going on in their classes

Head of the Middle School, Dr. Brendan Byrne, said, "The Showcase is a wonderful event that highlights the creativity and collaboration that takes place among our students and faculty. It's a chance to celebrate our students who participate and thrive artistically and academically here at Harvey. One can't help but feel tremendous pride in our students and staff when attending an event like the Showcase."
