Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School is very proud of the outstanding performance of The Wizard of Oz that was presented by our Theater Department yesterday to a packed house made up of those participating in our annual Grandparents Day as well as students from All Saints Academy, St. Joseph Elementary School, St. Anthony Elementary School, and Cityview Elementary School. A wonderful time was had by all, and the Theater Department rose to the occasion for their first spring musical in the newly renovated Burke Center for the Performing Arts.
The faculty who worked on this production, Mr. and Mrs. Seger, Mrs. Bonczek, and Mr. Penza, deserve recognition for all their hard work and dedication towards this show, especially as it relates to costuming, makeup, and sound and lights; certainly a top notch production. And it is obvious that the cast and crew has prepared well during rehearsal; the students who perform and those who work as sound and stage crew have done a great job, and we are very happy that St. Peter Central Catholic Elementary School sent us several munchkins who add a very special element to the show.
I would encourage anyone and everyone to make a point to to see The Wizard of Oz over the weekend. Performances are on Friday and Saturday evening at seven p.m. and on Sunday afternoon at two o’clock. Tickets can be purchased by calling the school during regular hours or can be purchased at the door; seven dollars for adults and three dollars for students. We hope to see you there.
