Article by Alyssa Badger, SJHS Student Staff Writer

Every year Springville Junior HIgh does a school musical. In the past they’ve done plays like “Crazy For You” and “The Music Man.” This year Ms. Utrera, our school’s choir and yearbook teacher, chose “Singing in the Rain, Junior” for this years drama’s production. The leads include Monte Taylor, Kennedy BIrd, Hannah Henage, and Colin Gwilliam. The play will be performed for everyone Thursday, March 23, Friday, March 24, Saturday, March 25 and Monday, March 27 at 7 each night.

Kennedy Bird, “Lina Lamont” in the play, is really excited for everyone to see it. She thinks everyone will love it and that it’s a really fun show. She says her favorite part about doing the play is “All the people in it and it’s a really fun way to meet new people and make new friends.” She said she did the play because she has been in it every year, she loves performing and her brothers were also in school musicals.

Colin Gwilliam, “Cosmo Brown” in the play, auditioned for the play because he thought it would be fun and he was in it last year. “I like singing and dancing.” he added. His favorite part about the musical is “The singing and hanging out with friends backstage.”  He is very excited for everyone to see the play.

Kim Bartholomew, a cast member, did the play because “I’ve always had a passion for singing, and I’ve always wanted to do it. This is the first year I have time for it.” She said her favorite part about the play is how fun it is to learn new things and how fun she has singing and dancing. She is extremely excited for everyone to see it.

The school musical is open for everyone to see Saturday the 25th at 7 and closing night is Monday the 27th. Come support your peers in “Singing in the Rain”!
