Students from various schools in the Rochester City School District will have an opportunity to show off their acting and musical skills two nights in a row. On Friday and Saturday, Once On This Island Jr. debuts with students in grades four through eight.

This January marks the second year that students across the District have been combining their talents on a school play or musical. Staff from Community School No. 106, Children’s School of Rochester No. 15, Francis Parker School No. 23, and East Upper School have worked together many weeks to coordinate practices, choreography, music, and costume and set designs. 

Once On This Island Jr. is presented through special arrangements with Music Theatre International. All authorized materials are supplied by Music Theatre International.  

Thanks to a generous donation by the Rochester Education Foundation, student participants will join each other for dinner before each performance.

ROC City Players is open to all Rochester City School District students in grades four through twelve. For more information about the ROC City Players, please click here to visit the website.
