CBRSD Apollonian Players To Present Mary Poppins April 6 and 7, 2018

Wahconah Regional High School Apollonian Players will present the Broadway Musical version of MARY POPPINS Friday April 6th at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, April 7th at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Ticket prices are $12.00 for Adults, $10.00 for students and senior citizens, and $8.00 for children 12 and under. Tickets are available at the door. 

 This “practically perfect” musical is based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film. The jack-of-all trades, Bert, (Anthony Coviello) introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. George Banks (Joe Willson) and his wife Winnifred (Julia Drury) are at a loss as to how to properly raise their children in a society that expects them to live up to a particular status. Young Jane (Anna Duquette) and Michael (Aiden Betit) have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins (Aleksandra Tsangaridies) arrives on their doorstep. 

Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it." 

 Others in the cast include: Ashleigh Bird, Emma Brosnan, Grace Caccaviello, Annalise Cramer, Olivia Furlong, Shayne Haley, Maddie Heon, Grace Moriarty, Emily Perault, Brooklyn Pratt, Dylan Redd, Hannah Rogers, Zach Rogers, Lexi Schultz, and Michelle Williams The musical is under the direction of Pamela Fortlage-Gold, assisted by Thomas Towne, with musical direction by Ann-Marie Desautelle, and choreography by Vickie Hornstein.

2017 Art Tiles Installed at Craneville

 The tile project has a long history in Central Berkshire.  When walking the halls at Craneville, you can't miss the art tiles that line the walls.

Each year in Mrs. Clark's Art Classes students create designs and paint them on tiles.  Patterns are created (on graph paper) by students and submitted for a vote. The winning pattern is the design that is used to hang all of the tiles. This year's winning design was created by Landen Kiernan.  There were 88 tiles in all.

The tiles were installed by Mrs. Clark, Mr Garcia and 5th Grader Aidan Garcia and were unveiled to the public on Friday, May 12th.  Beautiful job everyone!

Upcoming CBRSD Music and Drama Performances Spring 2017

In celebration of Music In Our School's Month (MIOSM) concerts and assemblies will be held at Elementary Schools and  at Nessacus Middle School. In addition The WRHS Music and Drama Departments are presenting two classic American works: On March 16th and 17th the Music Department presented a concert of the entire Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. It was well received by those who attended. On April 7 and 8 the Musical 42nd St. will be performed. Also on the calendar:

Friday, March 24: Craneville 3-5 MIOSM Concert  Theme-"Explorers"/  1:30pm
Wednesday, March 29: Kittredge MIOSM Assembly /  2pm
Tuesday, April 11: Nessacus "Music from Books" Concert / 7pm

On April 7th (7pm) and April 8th (1pm and 7pm), the Apollonian Players will present the Musical 42nd Street.  Students learned how to tap dance for the production which promises to be outstanding.

This year at Nessacus students are preparing for a production (on April 11th at 7pm) that loosely has the theme "Music from Books/Literature". As many films are based and books, some music being played is from Harry Potter, Twilight, the Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka.  There will also be a dramatic recitation of the Edgar Allen Poe Classic "The Tell-Tale Heart" by ELA Teacher Corey Walsh prior to a performance of the piece by the 7th/8th Band.

We hope to see you at many of these events!!
