2018-19 Season Student Dress Rehearsals
Not JUST singing, music, scenery…the ACTING was incredible. The children/students in the audience seemed as though there was nothing much to anticipate. THEN… the curtain arose and their reaction was as mine in 1969 when I saw the Grand Canyon for the first time!
