Another Successful Production

This year, Barrack’s drama department has been on a roll! Starting off the 2023-2024 season, the middle school put on a bubbly performance of Finding Nemo Jr. with directors from Wolf-PAC at the head. The middle schoolers did a fantastic job bringing the heartwarming story to life. The student-directed show this year was Alice in Wonderland, directed by Ella Abramovitz ‘24 and Liana Matez ‘24. With rehearsals beginning in late December and performances the first week of February, the cast and crew had a short production process, with only five weeks to get the show stage-ready. The entire cast put forth their best selves and put on a show to remember. At each rehearsal, the cast did scene work and character work, learned their lines, played warm-up games, and had a ton of fun. The show was a huge success with a full crowd on the Sunday evening show, and many teachers and students coming out to support as well. The show featured three seniors on stage, Stacey Lipson ‘24, Don Miller ‘24 (and his puppet), and Zoe Kaplan ‘24, who all did an incredible job, as well as Raphi Hammermesh ‘24 stage managing. Next up on the drama department’s agenda is Mean Girls! The entire drama department is so excited to be working on this incredible musical, coming to our auditorium on April 14th, 15th, and 16th. A record 25 people auditioned for this year's Upper School Musical, so stay tuned to see this amazing performance with its fantastic cast!
