Hats Off to Directors & Cast

By Staff | Nov 4, 2010

To the Editor:

We have had the opportunity to attend many fine programs featuring the talent of the Emmetsburg High School students over the years. Certainly, the production of “All Shook Up” put on last weekend has to be in the top tier of such events. The musical direction of Dave Fog is always of top quality, but when enhanced by the choreography of Mary Drew and the instumental efforts of Aaron Phillips’ pit band it makes for an extremely enjoyable evening.

The staging and costumes are spot-on for this production and every cast member gave an incredible performance. With the large cast and crew needed for this effort, over one third of the total student body must have contributed to the effort. Besides the hours of effort for this play, many cast members are also involved with the football, volleyball, cross country, marching band, and cheer squads. When the Honor Roll is published, we are sure that a good many cast members will appear on it as well. Our hats are off to the directors and young people for their work. It demonstrates that even though enrollment may be lower over the years, the quality of the student productions has not wavered.
