Kaitlin Tenbrunsel is in the fast lane these days! Eponine will be her third lead role in less than a year. Last spring she performed as Alex in Madagascar at Station Middle School.

It doesn’t get a whole lot better than landing your first lead role…Julia Baumer can hardly contain herself. She will be Fiona in Woodscreek Elementary’s winter production of Shrek Jr. This Crystal Lake school does an amazing job on all their shows. Can’t wait to see it! Way to go Julia – knew you […]

Anna McCoy couldn’t be happier. She auditioned for Prairie Middle School’s fall play Apostrophes and was cast as Mrs. Sully! She’s been working hard to improve her acting technique. Guess all that hard work is paying off. Nice job Anna!

District 220 put on two great shows last weekend. Seussical was double cast to offer more students the opportunity to perform. You can’t go wrong with this show. There’s something in it for everyone. Leads really stepped up with best-effort performances, all of them above average. There were a lot of smaller roles peppered throughout […]
Jessica Cygan competed in piano and voice categories at the 47th annual Granquist Competitions held in Geneva, IL last weekend. She did alright for herself, walking away with a third place trophy for her singing! She must have had some stiff competition, because her score was in the high 90’s! So proud of her. This […]
