Virtuoso, Jr. is made up of seventh and eighth graders and the group presented “An Evening of One-Acts” in the high school auditorium. The first short play was “Cinderella Wore Combat Boots”, a comedic spin on the traditional fairy-tale. It was followed by “Baby”, a humorous play about an infant’s first year of life seen from the perspective of a baby.

The young actors and actresses did an excellent job and kept the audience very entertained! The crew members behind the scenes did wonderful work as well making sure that everything on stage went smoothly – from running the equipment to making sure that the performers looked good.
