Montgomery Locals Mar. 22, 2017

By Staff | Mar 22, 2017

The Montgomery School District threw open the doors last Thursday and treated the public to an Evening of the Arts. The elementary halls and the high school library were filled with colorful drawings, paintings, collages, and pottery projects. The school was bustling as young artists proudly showed their work to their families. The evening also allowed children to participate in some collaborative art projects.

Virtuoso, the high school theatre ensemble, used the evening to promote their upcoming show “Little Shop of Horrors.” Dressed in bright costumes with 1950s flair, the students previewed some of the song and dance numbers. Ranging from catchy doo-wop to longing ballads, the show is sure to be a good one. “Little Shop of Horrors” will be performed April 28-30 in the high school auditorium.

In an economic climate where many schools are cutting the arts, I think it’s a point of pride for our town that the Montgomery Area School District has a thriving arts program. It’s wonderful that our young people are given a variety of opportunities to grow and excel.

THOT “You’ve got to recognize, there will never be another you. It has nothing to do with ego; it happens to be the truth. There will never be another person the same. There’ll never be another you. There’ll never be another me . . . And there’ll never be another show like this!” Mickey Rooney
