Ready for Peter Pan!

Friday, May 11, 2018

Next week the Class of 2018 will put on this year's 8th grade musical, the timeless classic Peter Pan! The 8th grade musical is always a highlight of the school year and a rite of passage of the 8th graders’ individual and collective journeys. This year, the play is even more special because it’s the first major drama production in the new Logan Loft!

Younger students, parents, and faculty and staff will delight in the reprisal of their favorite characters from Peter to Captain Hook to Tinker Bell to Wendy Darling, and we’ll all be captivated by the themes of childhood freedom and youthful exuberance versus… growing up!

With each season we are reminded that the arts programs at Burgundy and especially these Middle School productions are signature developmental moments where students find their voices and surprise us with their talents. Some of you who know our 8th graders are in for some wonderful surprises Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! They have taken on important and impressive roles both onstage and off. I know you'll want to join me in seeing our Burgundy “seniors” next week at one of their four shows, including a special Thursday afternoon show and a new Saturday matinee. Tickets are available online. See you there!
