Local schools to take the stage

Auditoriums in our area’s schools will be filled during the coming weeks, as the region’s high school and middle schools are presenting their annual spring productions.

The presentations offering a great opportunity for relatives, friends and even area residents to support our local school districts while enjoying the talents of area students.

This year’s schedule included a wide array of titles, including “Titanic: The Musical,” “Willy Wonka Jr.,” “Charlotte’s Web” and “My Fair Lady.”

Each of these productions represents the culmination of months and months of hard work and sweat from students who learned lines and songs, as well as dance routines.

The shows represent the patience and hard work of the teacher and directors, and of support staff including students and parents and other teachers who get the stages ready and the sets prepared and the costumes just so.

It’s a chance to laugh, to ponder and to simply enjoy a variety of talent available in our area high schools. If you doubt that today’s youth are capable of much beyond video games, erase those doubts by attending one of these productions.

You’ll see talent on display from young people dedicated enough to have put in the time it takes to perform in a production.

It is a credit to these schools, these instructors and, especially, these students.

And when the lights come up and the applause rise, we hope it’s full houses that the performers see.
