Thumbs up to all the area actors, set builders, technicians and adults who are taking part in musical productions in schools throughout our area. It takes hundreds of hours of preparation to make such productions come to life. For a few hours, area students who don't often get the chance find themselves enjoying the spotlight that comes with being on stage. Community residents, meanwhile, are treated to a wonderful, and inexpensive, night out. It is truly a win-win for all involved. Any area school who hasn't done so already can submit information about their musical by visiting our Virtual Newsroom at post-journal.com or emailing the information and a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
