The very successful and sold out March run of Todd Wallinger's "The Enchanted Bookshop" was definitely one to remember!
The show had a cast and crew of 30 students from sixth, seventh and eighth grades and was the biggest group ever involved in a Middle School play. With so many students interested in participating, Lower & Middle School Arts Coordinator Patti Veconi added several additional characters to the show with a warm-up skit and intermission game show called “Literary Pursuit” in which members of the audiences competed for prizes.
The 81st Street Auditorium - normally set up as a black box theatre - turned into a charmingly timeless bookshop. The stunning transformation was made possible by the creative team of Marjorie Vera, Robin Reczek and Ed Huml. The beautiful set designed by the arts teachers truly enhanced the work the student-actors!
