Middle School Students Introduce Community to School Play, Actors
**Note: The below article was written by two Robbinsdale Middle School Robin's Report Writers: Tatyanna Fasbender and Aeshia Williams, 7th graders
The musical Andy is a very important production because all of the actors and actresses have put a LOT of hard work in learning the songs, lines, and dances. This is especially true for Andy, Ms. Warbucks, and the rest of the main cast.
The musical has been so much fun and all of the actors and actresses have been so nice. It feels great to be up on the stage. We love working with one another. Being able to express yourself is a big part of the musical; the choreographers include your ideas into the dance. All sixth
graders will see this when they go to the matinee.
There are behind-the-scenes stars for the musical, too. The actors and actresses work hard, but the real stars of the show is the crew! If it weren’t for them we wouldn’t have a show: No lights, no sound, no costumes!
If you’re looking for a fun after school activity sign up or try out for the musical or play.
There is a part for EVERYONE: singers, dancers, artists, even people with stage fright try out for the stage cast or the awesome crew you’ll always find friends no matter WHAT!!!
