“It’s a really, fun energetic musical and there is a lot happening,” said Kiel Fredrickson, Artistic Director and Teacher at Hunting Hills High School.
The play is about Wednesday falling in love with someone who is from modern society which leads to a shake up to the family dynamic, said Kelsey Rumberger, Technical Director and Teacher at Hunting Hills.
“It leads to comedic effects,” laughed Fredrickson. “There’s lots of fun humour in it with big musical numbers and we’ve got quite a bit of dance including a tango. There is a South American influence in the actual story itself so we have infused that into the design of the show as well. It’s a really fun show!”
He added the students have let their creativity fly throughout the process.
“The kids came up with a lot of the design aesthetics for the sets, they created props, they have been sewing costumes, painting, and making puppets by hand,” said Fredrickson. “The lighting and sound design is also done by students. It is pretty much entirely student-driven. Our students have grown so much in the last six months.You can see their enthusiasm has grown and their abilities as performers have grown as well.”
