“We are having so much fun preparing for this show,” said director Jensyn Modero. “Everything from the costumes to the scenery to the unbelievably talented students is sure to entertain young and old alike.”

Thirty-two student actors will take the stage and transform into the beloved characters from the well-known story adapted for the stage by Sharon Holland.
