It Was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

It is one thing to have students that excel at acting, or singing, or even dancing; but to accomplish all three of these so well in one production is extraordinary. I tell people all the time how talented our students are and this weekend it once again showed to be true. The Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and the Step In Time numbers featured 48 cast members in a complicated display of choreography that was in tight unison and formation. If you didn’t see it, it is truly difficult to find the words to adequately describe how spectacular this production really was or how incredibly proud I am of our Fine Arts Department.

It is so hard to start the “thank you parade” without leaving someone out but I am going to make the attempt.

Thank you students for all of the hours and hours of hard work you put into rehearsals. Your dedication truly showed in the magnificent outcome.

Thank you seniors for stepping up and providing the leadership to help make this an incredible success. Your abilities and experience helped to train the younger students in what success looks like. It is a great legacy to leave our drama department.

Thank you rookie actors for trying out. This production had a number of students that were in their very first “big” production with IRCS. You displayed awesome talent that will make our fine arts program shine for years to come.

Thank you chorus members. You don’t get a lot of recognition but what you did added so much to the musical. It couldn’t have been the same without you.

Thank you backstage and technical people. Your unselfishness to be willing to work behind the scenes allowed those on the stage to do their best.

Thank you to all the volunteers and parents that built sets, painted, procured props, decorated, sold flowers or water, cleaned up, and did everything else necessary for success.

Thank you to Food Service for helping to make dinner theatre possible with the outstanding meal.

Thank you to Facilities for helping us wherever needed.

Thank you JillTed Florist for donating the flowers sold as a fundraiser for the drama department.

Thank you to our other donors C2 Design GroupDr. and Mrs. Gabriel, and the Faller Family.

Thank you Jaylin Photography & Films for the incredible “head shots” of our students.

Thank you to the leadership team of Director Carly Faller, Music Director Rhonda Farver, Assistant Director Cindi Banse and Choreography Director Brittany Kennedyfor putting in the hours to work with our students that resulted in this phenomenal show.

Thank you to everyone who attended. The energy of the crowd greatly enhances the performance of the students. We are grateful for your support of the drama department at IRCS.

Until next year . . .
