Here's what director Jeanne Hardie says about the production:

CELEBRATION by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt is one of those shows that was frequently performed in the late 60’s and early 70’s but is now mostly a fond memory in the minds of us older baby boomers.  Following the phenomenal success of THE FANTASTICKS, Jones and Schmidt created another musical fable, but here the story is a bit darker as CELEBRATION explores the contrasts between youth and old age, innocence and jaded corruption, love and ambition, and poverty and wealth.  Boy still meets girl, but the outcome is in some doubt.  At one point, the boy, Orphan, wonders if this is, indeed, a musical comedy at all.  “Is there going to be a happy ending or not?” he asks.  Well, never fear.  This IS a musical, and it is funny but also poignant, filled with cynical wisdom, wide-eyed hopefulness and compelling music.  Come join us for a CELEBRATION!

The 1st graders worked together in their Music Class on Sept. 26, while the 2nd graders danced and laugh during their class.  See photo galleries of the 1st Graders and the 2nd Graders with music teacher Judy Hafso. 

The 3rd grade class created 3D art with colorful pipe cleaners and paper on Sept. 26.  See a Photo Gallery of them hard at work on their creations.
