The TJ Walker Allied Arts program will mark its 28th year with the production of Shrek the Musical Jr. The Allied Arts program has evolved over the years from one that targeted the musically and dramatically talented student to one that has something to offer for every kind of student. The students handle all aspects of the project, including making the scenery; building the props; managing the sound and lighting; serving the food and delivering the performance. Leslie Hill, Choral Director for the Sturgeon Bay Middle and High School, says the students carry the program.
Hill, who has served in her role with the school district for 18 years, says the supervision and direction are provided by a four-teacher collaborative. Each teacher brings the expertise of their department to the project which optimizes the learning experience for the students. For more information about the production, or how to purchase tickets for the public performance on December 8th, contact Leslie Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
