Bronxville's Middle School Musical, '13,' Big Success: See Photos PDF Print Email

Jun. 11, 2014: In professional fashion, Bronxville Middle School choral and drama instructor Lindsey Blackhurst led 70 middle school students in sold-out performances of the musical 13.

The musical by Jason Robert Brown was held over the weekend of May 31 and June 1 at Sarah Lawrence College's Wright Auditorium.

Among those who helped make 13 a success are choreographer Sarah Jane Johnson and music director/keyboardist Dr. Jonathan Faiman, who teamed up with Ms. Blackhurst to create the production, and SLC professor of theater and stage management Rebecca Sealander, who patiently guided Bronxville's technical crew through all behind-the-scenes aspects of the performances.

SLC's director of administrative services, Debra Finkelstein, assisted the volunteer production team through setup and facilities use; Chad Lawrenz of Sound Associates oversaw sound for the performances; and volunteer drama mamas Cira Marmolejos and Trish Burnell spent countless hours behind the scenes working with Ms. Blackhurst and families.

Also to be acknowledged are merchants throughout Bronxville who kindly displayed posters advertising the production and many other parent volunteers who assisted in this large-scale production.

Congratulations to the cast and crew on a spectacular run.
