District resident Nancy DiGiacomo stated, “Just saw The Sound of Music at the High School. I was Blown away. It was terrific – Maria and all the Von Trapp ‘kids’ were unbelievable…the whole cast. And what I found to be the most amazing part – that they had live music including both an orchestra/band. WOW!!!!. She continued, “You can not imagine how much talent this district has. If you can go, I would highly recommend going. By the way – I do NOT have a child in the play or the high school for that matter. Just sooo good I had to share”.
