Senior citizens are invited to attend a complimentary performance of the spring musicals at Lincoln-Way Central, Lincoln-Way East, Lincoln-Way North and Lincoln-Way West high schools.
Each school is hard at work preparing for the musicals, which will debut in April.
Lincoln-Way Central will present the classic music of Cole Porter in “Anything Goes” while Lincoln-Way East will tackle a new one, the energetic, fun-loving show “Legally Blonde the Musical,” based on the hit movie of the same name starring Reese Witherspoon.
Lincoln-Way North will recreate Andrew Lloyd Webber’s colorful tale of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” while Lincoln-Way West will present the lively musical, “Seussical,” based on the collective works of Dr. Seuss.
“Bringing these characters to life has been such a blast for the entire ensemble,” said Tom Venutolo, the choral director at Lincoln-Way West. “Every cast member is very enthusiastic about this production and is working hard to make it the best West musical we have done.”
“It has been a complete pleasure to work with the students on this show,” said Christina Shoemaker, the choral director at Lincoln-Way North. “For many of them, `Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ is a childhood favorite musical and so it has been a dream for them to be a part of the cast.”
