Lyman Gilmore Middle School is performing a Broadway classic musical aimed to whisk you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up.
Over 65 students are involved in this year's production of Peter Pan Jr. This musical is based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale and is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world for 60 years and is now adapted for young performers.
In this adventure, audiences come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.
The performance features the iconic songs, "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta Crow," "I Won't Grow Up" and "Never Never Land," and a book full of magic, warmth and adventure.
All performances are held at the Don Baggett Theater at Nevada Union High School, Friday through Sunday. Tickets are available at the Bookseller downtown, at the door or online. Visit http://www.lymangilmoremusicaltheater.com for more information.
This past weekend 23 musical theater students attended the 17th Annual Middle Stage Drama Fest in Pleasant Hill. Students performed monologues, scenes and musical numbers, competing for gold, silver, and bronze medals. This year over 300 students from 20 middle schools competed in the festival. In the end, Gilmore walked away with nine gold, eleven silver and twenty-four bronze medals. Special recognition goes to Max Schug who placed 4th out of 160 other students competing in the Monologue division!
During the month of February the students of Lyman Gilmore donated snacks to be given to seniors on Valentine's Day. They collected snacks such as small bags of crackers, cookies, chips, granola bars and candy to donate to this great service project. Then some students from the Leadership Club filled goodie bags and took them to the Bret Harte and Atria Senior Living. The people appreciated it so much! Way to go Gilmore!
