CHS Drama Dept. presents "Shrek the Musical"
“What makes us special makes us strong!” Such is the theme for ogres and other freaks! The CHS Drama Department was excited to present “Shrek! the Musical” April 3-5. The show, directed by Joy Hamilton, boasted a cast and crew of over 70 students as actors, singers, dancers, and stage ninjas. The stage manager was Tana Stamper, a junior, and the only junior to have ever served in that role. The music director was Michelle Rutowski and Kathy Tousignant was choreographer.
Some of the characters were; Shrek played by James Goodson, Fiona played by Kara Newman, Maddie Kiger, and Victoria Hester, Farquaad played by Anthony Sgro, and Donkey played by Jacob Bowman. Mama Ogre was played by Dominique Romero and Papa Ogre was Chris Williamson.
The cast and crew were excited to get in extra performances for students from New Town and Kensington Elementary Schools during the school day.
“It was the most challenging production we have taken on,” said Joy Hamilton. “The dance, the costumes, the set, the crazy characters and makeup – there were so many different components. This has definitely been our most involved production!”
