A long-treasured Country Day tradition, the entire eighth-grade class treated the community to a spring musical, and this year’s class performed Singing in the Rain Jr.
Led by the unflappable Lois Rust, the school's drama teacher and events coordinator, the students involved in the production worked tirelessly for months to pull together a show that was both entertaining and memorable. They put in countless hours rehearsing dance moves, speaking lines, and singing voices, building sets, creating costumes, perfecting lighting and sound, and creating a spectacular show.
Matthew Wood, as Don Lockwood, and Leon Hall, as Cosmo Brown, were magnificent with their performances, nailing their dialogue and hitting every mark with their dance moves.
The Class of 2027 showed that they have what it takes on the big Keeler Theater stage. The students showed a level of talent and commitment to the production and to each other that was truly impressive. Their hard work paid off in a show that will be remembered for years to come.
