12 Magnificent Performances of 3 Marvelous Musicals at SFT

Over a four-​​week period in November and December, more than two dozen SFT students partic­i­pated — as actors, musi­cians, designers, tech­ni­cians, and direc­tors — in 12 High­wood Theatre perfor­mances of three very different award-​​winning musi­cals. The weekend of November 16–18 featured four moving perfor­mances of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning Next to Normal ; four funny perfor­mances of Tony Award winning The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee were presented during November 30–December 2; and over the weekend of December 14–16, audi­ences enjoyed four enter­taining perfor­mances of Tony Award winning Sweeney Todd .

These produc­tions were inspiring exam­ples of student theatre at its best. The sold-​​out audi­ences were moved to tears, laughter, and standing ovations. There couldn’t have been a better start to The High­wood Theatre ’s 10th anniver­sary season, its second housed at School for Tomorrow.
