MIDDLE SCHOOL MUSICAL
THE ENCHANTED BOOKSHOP
" Will there be a Middle School Musical? "
That was the question Mrs. Riley, our music
teacher, was asked many times at the
start of this school year by both parents
and students. The cancellation last year,
much to our disappointment, of our Middle
School Musical left everyone wondering if
this favorite tradition would be able to take
place this year. It took till March to make
the determination but the excitement was
high when Sister announced that there
would be a musical. In a flurry of activity,
auditions were held and rehearsals began.
With just eight weeks from auditions
to performances, Mrs. Riley and her
talented team put on a fantastic show that
impressed all those watching!
The Enchanted Bookshop is the story of " A
Likely Story " ; this little shop may look like
any other used bookstore but at night magic
happens as the characters inside the books
come alive. Add to the mix a mysterious
lady in red, two dangerous smugglers, and
a sneaky cat and there is something for
everyone. Billed as a charming comedy, this
musical celebrates the joy of reading.
We would like to give a special thank you
to Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High
School for allowing Aquinas to use their
auditorium for the four performances.
Additionally, we were also able to live stream
the show for those who couldn't attend;
without the support of the high school we
could have never offered this opportunity.
* To ensure social distancing, the musical
had two casts and put on four shows over
two days!
