Every year, the best-kept secret in the CDS Middle School is the chosen Spring Musical.
As anxious students counted down the days, and then the hours, and finally the minutes, Mr. Minkus never cracked. Neither begging nor bribery (with Coke Zero) could get Mr. Minkus to reveal what only he knew.
Finally, at 7:40 a.m. on October 24, Mr. Minkus announced that the Spring Musical would be Disney's Lion King Jr. with posters plastered across the 3rd Floor hallway as the students arrived in the morning.
Our patient and talented director Jessica Savitz, an acclaimed CDS alum, will transform the our stage into an African savanna, where Simba happily plays and Scar deviously plots. Our creative Music Director Eileen Freedman will orchestrate the humorous Timon and Pumbaa duet “Hakuna Matata” and Rafiki’s stirring “Circle of Life.”
With plenty of familiar songs and classic characters, every student actor’s participation will make the audience roar with applause.
Auditions are right around the corner after school on Monday, November 18, and rehearsals will begin shortly afterward. Stay tuned for cast announcements.
We just can’t wait to see Lion King Jr.!
