Approximately 60 students will be involved in two performances Saturday, at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. in Memorial Hall
Sponsored by the New England Booster Club, the MCT is returning to New England for the sixth year in a row.
The two performances will have an admission price of $7 for adults and $5 for students, according to Sara Krebs, the president of the booster club.
The performances will come after a week of rehearsals in Memorial Hall under the supervision of two co-directors from MCT, Clarice Bruch and Connor Murphy-White.
The MCT worked with students to perform Snow White last year, added Krebs.
“It is wonderful. I am glad the Booster Club can bring this in every year,” she said as she watched a groups of the students work with one of the directors on the stage.
“We are involved with activities for all of the children at school,” Krebs added.
“Usually, we have a pretty good showing. Even the little kids (in the audience) get into it. There is a lot of singing and singing keeps the kids engaged, she added.
