Fort Herriman Middle School Carries on Long Tradition of Amazing Musicals

Students on stage in Newsies Jr.They have been producing some pretty amazing musicals for more than a decade now at Fort Herriman Middle School and this year is no exception. Theater teacher Kala Martin is the driving force behind the shows and has been producing them for 11 years with retired teacher Stacy Thackeray by her side. Tanner Sumens, a talented dancer and choreographer, has been sharing his talents helping with the shows for six years.

This year the students took to the stage in an incredible performance of the Broadway musical, Newsies Jr. They sang their hearts out in amazing costumes surrounded by Broadway-like props and a wonderful set design.

Thanks to Kala Martin, Stacy Thackeray and Tanner Sumens for working tirelessly preparing students to be in the spotlight and giving them an opportunity to shine.

Congratulations to everyone involved on a fabulous performance and a job well done!
