A show that conquered the odds in more ways than one...

"Jesus Christ Super Star" at Tyngsboro High


Where do you go after this show.

Talk about heavy. Needless to say, we kept the kids home for this one.

The last three scenes were indescribable. After seeing the performance the first couple of times, I found myself watching the audience's reaction more than the show.

The word emotional does not come close.

Hands down one of their most powerful performances.

Just check it out...

The North Shore Music Theater also recognized Tyngsboro High for there spotlight award.

Making this feat even more amazing was the fact that this was all pulled of in the midst of a tragic loss to one cast member as his father passed away right before the start of the show run.

Amazingly enough he was there in full force and nailed his solo piece receiving a huge round of applause...and rightfully so.

If I could speak to him right now I would say to him without any question... "He heard you".

Though nowhere near as significant as this tragedy, I was faced with another sad reality of having to say goodbye to another great group of kids who happen to be, up to this point, my longest running group of students. Tyngsboro has a middle school theater program and I met these students there back in 2003. I have had the pleasure of watching them grow, and grow, and GROW for the past 5 years. I hope to still see them after this year is over when they visit the theater program for future shows. Not seeing them again would be sad. I will miss the parents equally as I have had the pleasure providing them with captured memories of their most prized possessions over the past 5 years. So.....come back and visit me Seniors! You know where you can find me = )
