Directors’ Notes As music director at Lakeland for the past twelve years, the students, the committed parents, the great staff of experts, the volunteers, and I have established an award winning competitive show choir and marching band. Added to this list of accomplishments is maintaining the tradition of outstanding annual musical theater productions. Lakeland also has an excellent concert band, a concert choir, a stage band, and we, the musicians, support the football and basketball teams with our pep band. We are proud of the music program being an important part of Lakeland High School’s traditions. The first musical at Lakeland with which I was involved was Crazy For You, produced in 1998 with Dana McAfee and I as co-directors. I am retiring at the end of this year, and I thought it would be fun to produce Crazy For You again– this time co-directing with Peggy Bailey. It has been wonderful to see the show come to life again. LHS has put on some wonderful shows over the past twelve years, and I have enjoyed every one of them. I would like to thank Michelle Myers and Peggy Bailey for being great directors and friends, and Dave McAlister for all of his work on lights, sound and wonderful little details, and all of the people who have been a part of the pit orchestras over the years. There have been countless other people who have made these a success– too many to count. Most importantly, I thank the many students who have been a part of these shows. It has been such a joy to work with them and to watch them grow into fine and talented men and women.

-Donna Russell To the cast: Thank you for an amazing journey! You have shown what real commitment can accomplish. Your work on this show is a shining example of what each of you carry within. You are as powerful as you think you are...and I think you're fierce. It's been a gift to watch this cast grow, and mature over the year we have been working on this show. I am so proud of each and everyone of you, and so excited to show you off. Knock it out of the ballpark kids...and make the magic happen!! To the parents: Behind every great kid is a great parent...without a doubt! This is one of the most compelling and bright group of students I have ever had the privilege of working with...but challenges come when working with students of this caliber...good challenges. They meet you, match you, and ask for more. Thank you for sharing your children with me, its been a joy. You have great kids!!! To Donna Russell: We bid farewell to a dear friend when the curtain comes down on Sunday. Donna and I have worked together on six shows...six amazing shows. Change is important for growth, but with change comes goodbyes, and goodbyes are never easy. It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to Donna. It is time that she learns to rest, and take care of herself. We joke that she is not human...anyone that can keep the schedule that she does, for as long as she does. Donna, you will always have a seat in this auditorium and a place in our hearts. We love you, and hope your life will be filled with adventure and happiness.

IRA GERSHWIN (Music & Lyrics) the first songwriter to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize, was born in New York City on December 6, 1896. In 1917 The Evening Sun published his first song. Four years later Ira enjoyed his first major stage success, TWO LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE, written with Vincent Youmans. In 1924 Ira and his brother, George, created the smash hit LADY BE GOOD and went on to continue their remarkable collaboration through a dozen major stage scores, producing standards too numerous to mention. Ira also enjoyed productive collaborations with Harold Arlen, Vernon Duke, Kurt Weill, Burton Lane and Jerome Kern. Ira Gershwin died on August 17, 1983 in Beverly Hills. GEORGE GERSHWIN (Music & Lyrics) was born in Brooklyn on September 26, 1898, and began his musical training when he was 13. At 16 he quit high school to work as a "song plugger" for a music publisher, and soon he was writing songs himself. "Swanee", as introduced by Al Jolson, brought George his first real fame and led to his writing a succession of 22 musical comedies, most with his older brother, Ira. The Gershwins’ shows include LADY BE GOOD, OH, KAY!, STRIKE UP THE BAND, GIRL CRAZY and the Pulitzer Prize winning OF THEE I SING. From his early career George had ambitions to compose serious music. These ambitions were realized in some of his masterpieces, among them "Rhapsody in Blue", "Concerto in F", "An American in Paris" and "Second Rhapsody". George’s "folk opera” PORGY AND BESS opened in Boston on September 30, 1935 and had its Broadway premiere two weeks later. In 1937 George was at the height of his career but died on July 11 of a brain tumor. He was not quite 39 years old. KEN LUDWIG (Author) is an internationally acclaimed playwright who has had a number of hits on Broadway, in London and throughout the world. He has won the coveted Laurence Olivier Award, London’s highest theatre honor, in addition to two Tony Award nominations and two Helen Hayes Awards. His work has been performed in over 30 countries in at least 20 languages. His works include CRAZY FOR YOU, which won the Tony and Olivier Awards for Best Musical, LEND ME A TENOR, which won two Tony Awards and the Olivier Award nomination for Best Play. He studied music at Harvard with Leonard Bernstein and theatre history at Cambridge University in England.
