 9th-12th Grade Production


Directed & Musical Direction by Lincoln Brandt
Choreographed by Rylee Vogel
based on original choreography by Cole Emarine
Artistic Direction by Jalyn Webb

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws – including a ban on dancing – which are the brainchild of a local preacher bent on exercising control over the town’s youths. When the Reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about the new kid.

With its Oscar’-nominated hit score (the film soundtrack album has sold over 15 million copies world-wide) the celebrated film musical now bursts explosively onto the stage!

K-7th grade production

Dear Edwina!

Directed by Jill & Amanda Van Orden


Have a problem you don’t know how to solve?  Write to Dear Edwina!  Every week – live from her front lawn, advice-giver extraordinaire, Edwina Spoonapple and her somewhat talented friends, put on the “Dear Edwina Show” offering sensible advice to the younger neighborhood children through unforgettable characters and songs. Edwina and her friends offer advice on everything from birthday party protocol, table manners, and fund-raising tips. In the end, Edwina receives the best advice as she embraces her own uniqueness and learns to “Sing Your Own Song.”
