A Glimpse at last year.... Last year drama club and the vocal ensembles performed at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair, “Relay for Life,” and Alz Place. The drama club competed in Walt Disney World at the National Performing Arts Festival. They achieved an excellent rating and received a special judges trophy for their clever re-written

Shakespeare scenes. Two members brought home Outstanding Performance Medals. We are so PROUD! The troupe also rocked... in “Grease-school edition at their December Dinner Theater. The Vocal Ensembles performed at the Kindergarten and Eighth grade graduations, and the MMS Elementary/Middle School Student Showcase as well as singing holiday harmonies at the December Dinner Theater. We look forward to our 2010 - 2011 season!
