Seton School Proudly Announces the Spring Musical for 2019…

“This is a must-see performance, a magical two and a half hours, from the Kansas farmland to Munchkin Land to the yellow brick road to wonderful land of Oz to the haunted forest to the witch’s castle then back to Oz and finally home to Kansas.  Every performer, from the tiniest Munchkin to the tallest Winkie was a treat, and the costumes, dancing and stage sets will take your breath away.  All of the behind-the-scenes crew, from the tornadoes to the light and sound technicians, were superb.  Congratulations to one and all, especially to Producer Mrs. Erin Vander Woude and Director Mrs. Maryan Vander Woude. God bless all the amazingly talented people who made this dream of a show become reality.”

Last Years Fall Play



“Stunning is the only word for the fall play production of Cyrano.  From start to finish the audience was transported into 17th century France and the haunting story of Cyrano’s self-sacrificing love.  Absolutely everyone involved in this performance was superb:  the production team and volunteers, the crew, the amazing Mr. Moore, and of course the wondrous cast.  These young people spent long hours rehearsing and still kept up with their academic obligations. And then Saturday night and Sunday afternoon they gave us a miracle.  In his End Notes, Mr. Moore said, “It is not hyperbole to say that you will leave the theater today changed for the better.” He was right. Many, many thanks to all of the Cyrano community for giving me a priceless memory that will last a long, long time.”
