“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have musical theater alive at Robert Frost,” said Dr. Eliana Levey, the school’s principal. “Ms. Stein and Mrs. Sullivan worked themselves to the bone to prepare our students for this magnificent production. I am so proud of both them and our students for an outstanding and beautiful show.”

“The show was such an amazing experience,” said seventh-grader Siegel. “I made new friends and it helped me with my confidence. I learned more about singing and stage presence from Ms. Stein and Mrs. Sullivan. I can’t wait to see what is in store for next year.”
