Fisher Music and Chorus teacher Patti Cody is excited to share this production with the community. “This play has quite a few characters and we have many student-actors who can handle large speaking parts, so it’s perfect for our school. The last time I produced this play was in 2000, after I had written a script analysis of it for a class in musical theatre. I am excited to direct it again, and the kids love it. The students are amazing and are doing a great job.”
Cody is assisted by Pianist Peggy D’Amour, Stage Manager Brian Howe and student volunteers Anna Fischer and Lee Krulikowski.
