This year's spring musical at MV is off and running! A couple weeks ago at our school each chorus member had one vote, and they could select from the following possible shows: Honk Jr., Lil Abner, and Willy Wonka Jr. Willy Wonka won in a landslide! Auditions were held by Mr. Putnam and the cast list was posted two weeks ago.
Congratulations to the main cast members! There are around 30 roles with about an extra 20 Oompa Loompas/squirrels/chorus. Rehearsals have started and they are off to a great start. Most of our rehearsed songs are really coming together and if we keep it going at this rate our Spring Musical performance should be flawless by April 7th and April 8th. Since the songs are really starting to come together I bet we will soon be working on each scene in between the songs. These are each of the songs that will appear in our Musical: Pure Imagination, The Golden Age of Chocolate, The Candy Man, I Eat More, I Think Positive, I See it All On TV, Cheer Up Charlie, Think Positive Reprise, I've Got a Golden Ticket, In This Room Here, Oompa Loompa 1, There's No Knowing, Chew It, Oompa Loompa 2, and I Want It Now Finale.
I have no doubt that this spring musical will be an unforgettable night. If new ideas will continue to blossom, and with teamwork, and if everybody works hard and equally commits this should overall be a spectacular performance and night! So if you have nothing to do April 7th or 8th and you are in the mood for a couple great laughs come to our show. Break a leg actors and actresses, and have a great night!
