Second- through fourth-grade students presented an exciting musical event called "The Big Broadcast" on Friday, April 13.

The show was a hybrid concept format, based on cabaret-style scenes from various musicals showcased in between original or individual student acts, like a variety show. Not only does a show like this involve more student participation, but songs and scenes can be hand-picked for the student, rather than having to fit students around an already-written show.

Auditions took place the first week of the spring semester, and a nine-week rehearsal process commenced in an action-packed, costume-filled night of show-stopping numbers, from “The Greatest Showman” and “The Jungle Book,” to “Annie” and “The Wizard of Oz.”

Ten Lower School students were also part of the backstage crew. Elizabeth Weathington and Lucy McBride directed “The Big Broadcast” with magnificent costumes designed by Janelle Holton.
