Last Years Spring Musical

“What a wonderful, wonderful musical.  It took my breath away.  “Exuberant” is my favorite word to describe it.  Congratulations to Mrs. M. Vander Woude and Mrs. E. Vander Woude and everyone else who played any part in this shining production.”

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.”
