With opening night being in about a month, preparations for this year’s musical, “Meet Me in St. Louis,” are well underway. While the cast learned and memorized the music for the production with choral instructor Bethany Houff, they have now taken it to the stage to begin blocking the entire show. The directors, Stan Swartz and Phil Saunders, have not only been working with the lead characters to put together each scene, but dance teacher Amber Corriston has also been working with the ensemble to choreograph the major dance segments in the production.

Behind the scenes of the musical are the members of the pit orchestra. These instrumentalists are quite literally behind the scenes of this show, as they will be positioned on stage behind the back curtain to play the accompaniment to each of the songs in the musical. They began rehearsing music in the beginning of Jan. and now practice on Tuesdays and Wednesdays every week under the instruction of band director Daniel Upton.

Putting on a production of this size and caliber also requires the many helping hands of staff members and parent volunteers. There are multiple volunteer committees, and those such as set building and costuming have been meeting each Saturday since the start of Jan. to play their part in making this show come alive.

The performances will be held Wednesday Jan. 15 through Saturday Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday Jan. 19. at 3 p.m. in the HHS auditorium. Tickets are now available for purchase at
