Shrek the Musical Jr performed by Hester Junior High

One of the three after school clubs that I run at Hester is the stage crew, which designs all the scenery for the annual musical.  I am very fortunate to work with a talented music teacher, Marilee Castaneda, who puts together an amazing show with the choir students each year.  The 2016 performance was Shrek, Jr the musical.

Students interested in joining stage crew started out by filling out an application in December.  Over 50 students applied, but I could only take 35 students.  Each of the students chose one or two days that fit their schedule to attend meetings.  In just 7 short weeks the students painted the back stage wall, 4 rolling sets, a castle set, and constructed numerous props including the papier mache dragon head.

Please note that the kids are doing all the creating - I just consult them!

Here's a video slideshow of the performance with some AMAZING pictures taken by the one and only, Mrs. Pina!

Photos of the work in progress... Look at those hard workers!
