Overseeing this year's production was director and district parent Sarah McGraw Krushinski, and eighth grader McKenna Exline, who served as the production’s director. Ms. McGraw-Krushinski says she enjoyed working with the students.

“I love working with middle schools students,” she said. “They’re like sponges and are disciplined workers.”

Parent Carole Unitas, who worked on publicity for the program, is amazed at the number of participants.

“I find this production so special,” she explains. “Everyone has an opportunity to perform. It may be the only musical they perform in throughout their lifetime, so it’s special and they will always remember this time.”
