MEMS lights up the stage
The musical, with songs by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer, and book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer, is a send-up of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea." It's full of memorable songs and quick-witted banter, and the students' singing and acting were spot-on in a performance Wednesday for the student body.
While MEMS music teacher Fran Marino directed the musical, the production was student-run, including the lighting, sound, makeup and programs.
Two more performances were scheduled for Thursday at MEMS.
