Middle School Musical, "Into the Woods, Jr." was a huge hit!

Our middle school students, under the direction of Annie Parada, were magnificent as they acted, dance, and sang in the Broadway musical, “Into the Woods, Jr.”  The mystical tale featured a conglomeration of characters and well-known fairy tales.  Great job to everyone in the musical and who helped produce the wonderful performance.  See the video below for a few highlights!
