NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The New Canaan High School Theatre department recently wrapped up two highly successful productions.
Audiences enjoyed the upperclassmen's production of “Feathers in the Wind," a comical play with music that weaved together a collection of Jewish folktales about the wise fools of Chelm into a single fable. The students performed to one sold-out audience and nearly sold out performances on two other evenings., according to a release from New Canaan Public Schools.
The season continued with the underclassmen’s production of “The Wizard of Oz," a classic tale that has been entertaining audiences for generations and discovers the magical power of home and friendships, the release said.
The roles of the munchkins in the land of Oz were played by third-graders from South, East and West Elementary schools.
In March, the New Canaan High School Theatre will present “The Will Rogers Follies," a musical that narrates the life story of celebrated humorist Will Rogers through a series of spectacular Ziegfeld Follies production numbers. Performances will be from March 16 - 18, with shows starting at 7:00 p.m.
The production sponsors for this season are the Studio of Performing Arts, Silvermine Market, Divas Salons, Club Sandwich, Bankwell, Pressing Matters, Performing Arts Conservatory of New Canaan, April Kaynor Homes, Karl Chevrolet, Silver Hill Hospital, Sparky's Pet Sitting, Walter Stewart's Market, Halstead Property-Jeanne Rozel, and the New Canaan Dance Academy.
