NWCS students to present 'Back to the 80s' musical

CHESTERTOWN-North Warren High School is bound to host rollicking dancing and rock music songs brought to life by local students, as the school presents the musical "Back to the 80s" next weekend.

The show will be presented in three shows - Friday and Saturday, April 1 and 2 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 3 at a 2 p.m. matinee. There is no admission charge for any of the performances. Seating for the shows are on a general admission basis.

The show is peppered with song-and-dance numbers from that remarkable era that are bound to evoke a sense of nostalgia in the audience, according to Jeff Conkey, the show's technical director.

North Warren students in grades 7-12 make up the cast and crew, and the pit band consists of musicians from all across the southern Adirondacks, Conkey said.

The show is directed by North Warren's K-12 principal Theresa Andrew.

NWCS choral teacher Corey Cerullo is the show's Music Director, and Sheila Ellsworth is the choreographer.

All in the region are welcome to attend, Conkey said.
