TCS Newsletter – Friday, March 24th

Hello TCS families. Spring is here! Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!

“Hello, Dolly!” Musical:

Our much anticipated musical will take place on the evenings of April 6th,7th, & 8th at 7:00 P.M. each night. Tickets are $7 and are on sale in the high school office.

Synopsis of the musical:

In 1890s New York City, the bold and enchanting widow Dolly Levi (Kaitlyn Sutton) is a socialite-turned-matchmaker. Her latest clients seeking assistance are the cantankerous “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder (Brody Bowman) and a young artist named Ambrose (Adrian Williams), who is in love with Horace’s niece, Ermengarde (Anna Acklin). Dolly’s scheming soon involves Horace’s employees (Ethan DeLeon and Judah Whitman) as well as a New York hatmaker (Kierstin Kirkendall) and her assistant (Abigail Durst), as she tries to cover up her own secret romantic designs. The “Hello Dolly” production also includes many other students in the chorus, singing and performing the choreography for the many musical numbers. A big thank you goes out to all of the directors, along with those in charge of costuming, lights and sound. Also, thanks in advance for the parents and others who will be helping us set up the stage on Saturday morning March 25th.
