Carson High presents its first musical: 'Seven Brides for Seven Brothers'
Carson High School is doing its first ever musical: “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.”
The play has been a combined effort by the entire fine arts department.
Alex Reynolds directs; Dr. Patricia Stuart is musical director; Denise Paugh heads up choreography and Jeff Street is directing the orchestra.
The drafting classes, led by John Casteel, built the orchestra pit and stage extension for the musical.
“We have had a wonderful time putting it together and hopefully this will be the first of many spring musicals here at Carson,” Reynolds said.
“It is far and away our biggest show with more than 70 students involved on stage in the pit or working technical crew. For most of our kids, this is the first time in a musical, and for many, it’s their first time on stage.
“I am very proud of the hard work that has been put into making this show a success and the students who have given their all for more than nine weeks in preparation for Friday’s curtain,” Reynolds added.
“We hope that everyone will come out and see it.”
The play will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets are $5 at the door.
