Montgomery Locals May 2, 2018

By Staff | May 2, 2018

Montgomery Area High School’s Virtuoso gave a stellar trio of performances this past weekend in the high school auditorium. This year’s show was a demanding operetta called “Into the Woods.” It was a colorful blend of intertwining Grimms’ fairytales, humor, and Old World charm. The students embraced the challenging piece and triumphed. They delighted the audience with wonderful vocal performances and skillful comedic acting.

“Into the Woods” was co-directed by Carina McNear and Jessica Carpenter. The show was enhanced with an amazing set designed by James Carpenter that included Rapunzel’s tower that was actually climbed multiple times. The music was provided by a digital orchestra that was programmed and conducted by Brian Rehn.

Many, many congratulations to everyone involved in the show! You should be very proud of yourselves individually and as a group. Thank you for all of your hard work, dedication, and commitment to providing excellent entertainment to the community.
