A Wrinkle in Time is the story of Meg Murry, who is transported on an adventure through time and space to rescue her father from a planet taken over by hatred. She is joined by her little brother, Charles Wallace, and her friend, Calvin O’Keefe. With the help of some magical creatures and celestial beings, the children use love to conquer hate – a fitting message for all of us! Throughout the rehearsal process, the seventh graders brought their talent for singing, acting, and dancing as we added space-themed ideas to Meg’s adventure. The sixth graders brought their own talent to the production, especially in learning so many dances and performing them with energy. Finally, the eighth graders on crew took charge of almost every phase of this show. The costumes, sets, and props are the product of the creativity and organization of the crew, under the supervision of Ms. B. The technical crew working the sound, lights, and projections were quick to solve problems and eager to support the actors by making everyone on stage look good and sound good. This crew was stellar.
As with any L-Dub production, there are so many people to thank – teachers, staff, parents, and volunteers. For the second year in a row, we are lucky to have Ms. Andi as our musical director who brings so much joy to middle school singing, dancing, and acting. As always, our artistic director, Ms. B, offers the eighth grade patience and guidance as the students take over the costumes and sets. Theater week comes together because Ms. Colleen coordinates the many moving parts, while Ms. Eva, Ms. Lindsey, and Sra. Jacquie make sure the actors are dancing, singing, and acting with energy and volume. Thanks to all the faculty and staff who drove buses and cars to and from the theater and came to see the show (often more than once!) And lastly, thanks to parents, families, and friends who fill the theater with laughter and love. And, as Meg and her friends learn, love conquers all!
