Before you catch the show this week, be sure to check out the student-created website for ticket sales, information about the show, actor bios, headshots taken by Melissa Myser’s 8th grade Media Arts students and more! The website was created by Ninth Grade students Addison Figel ’25, Sophia Zhou ’25, and Arya Vishwakarma ’25.

Stay tuned for a Flickr album of the November 19th performance and a post-performance news post coming soon!
