An interjection of praise for a performance—and, performers.
was one of my several superlative sentiments this past week as we enjoyed Metro’s production of the
Wizard of Oz.
Re-creating this 1939 classic (under the direction of Mrs. Abby Phillips), nearly 100 cast and crew delighted (appropriately distanced) crowds all week with:
- 6 performances
- Performed after only 8 rehearsals - with a re-casting of 8 lead roles
- 45 High School and Middle School performers and crew
- 3 casts of Munchkins
- A recruited alumni crew from the Classes of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 to work alongside Bella Knapp, Stage Manager
- All new lighting and new microphones
Such talent. Such enthusiasm. Such fun.
Let’s face it, “There’s no place like home…” takes on a whole new meaning in 2020.
What a blessing it was to have so many Metro people back here at Metro! The way things were meant to be.
We look forward to moving forward. We are still committed to getting back as soon as we can, as much as we can, as normally as we can, as safely as we can.
To that end we…
- Eagerly await CDC's, THD's, and Mayor Bynum's (additionally) upcoming, updated guidelines. (These will help inform some of our return protocols.)
- Strategically research, plan, and prepare a model that makes most sense for Metro.
We plan to publish the
Return to Learn
protocols on Sunday, July 19.
In the meantime, we have some big events coming up in
that we eagerly anticipate,
Return to Athletics
on Monday, July 6 for which updated protocols will be released at the end of
We also continue to celebrate record enrollments of over 950 students in Camp Patriot—and, good health, too😊!
Moving forward together,
