Nearly 40 students and two teachers comprised the cast of this year's Middle School Musical, Bye Bye Birdie.
According to director Amanda Eastman, Chair of Theater Arts, "The story is a joyful and carefree classic with tons of catchy music, a multitude of roles, and a teen heartthrob. How could I not make this our Middle School Musical?" She adds, "What young teen does not want to dance with their friends, scream at a rock star, and wear a poodle skirt?"
This truly community-supported show also featured Riverdale students, teachers, and an alumna in the orchestra, as well as an entirely Upper School student tech crew.
