The main cast characters were double cast to give more students an opportunity to be part of the play, which involved 62 participants.

We applaud everyone who worked so hard to make the musical happen, giving students a wonderful opportunity to show off their many talents. A special thank you to the musical team staff including Diane Witt-Roper, Scott Knight and Alan LaFleue.
