Amelia is grateful for all of her cast and crew’s hard work pulling this show together – each and every one of you bring something special to this show. Getting to know you all has been a lot of fun and you should all be incredibly proud of the growth you have shown since your audition. Elle has been an amazing  teacher and mentor throughout this entire process. Thank you to Mike for helping the kids sing like birds! Kelli, Olive and Carly have been instrumental in keeping rehearsals and notes organized and have been great to bounce ideas off of. Musicals have a lot of moving parts and the team for this production has made the entire process smooth and stress-free. Special thanks to Taylor Kudalis, Tommy Stachowiak, Natasha Cote, Tyler Briere, Will English, and Thomas E. English for putting so many hours into helping with set builds/painting. Amelia is grateful to have been a part of this production and can’t wait for everyone to see what the cast, crew, and production team have all created together!
