Montgomery Locals Apr. 27, 2016
Montgomery Area High School’s Virtuoso put on an excellent production of “Beauty and the Beast” this past weekend. The show featured a wonderfully talented group of 60 performers who acted, sang, and danced on a lavish enchanted castle set. Each year the group puts on a fall play and spring musical. This colorful musical inspired by the Disney film was a stunning contrast to the gray-scale sentimental, tear-jerker production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” that they presented in December. Both shows were beautifully performed and provided a wonderful opportunity for the talented students to shine in very different genres of stage entertainment.
However, no one should be surprised that the school is turning out yet another group of incredibly talented young people. U.S. News and World Report just listed Montgomery Area High School as one of the top schools in Pennsylvania. Congratulations to the faculty, staff, and students.
Downtown Montgomery has been bustling with activity this week. On Saturday a group of volunteers cleaned up trash along Black Hole Creek, and on Sunday the Montgomery Area Historical Society hosted a successful antiques road show. The park is also coming alive with children’s soccer games, as well.
A warm welcome to the world is extended to Damien Lee LeVan, who was born on April 7th. In addition to Mommy and Daddy, he joins big brothers Brady, Austin, and Landon at home.
Congratulations to Josh Glover, a senior at Montgomery Area High School who was recently accepted to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. This rare honor will allow him to study his craft in New York City for two years followed by another two years in Los Angeles.
