On May 4, students from Rising Starr and Starr’s Mill’s special education music, chorus, and drama programs will take the stage to perform their spring musical, The Greatest Showman.

“We enjoy sharing our talents with others and hope that all will enjoy the show,” Savage said.

Rising Starr Middle School choral director Christy Todd and Starr’s Mill’s Career Based Vocational Instruction teachers, and the musical’s actors have created a show that individuals of all ages will enjoy. Students have been preparing for their performances since Spring Break.

The Greatest Showman will be the special education music program’s ninth spring show and second show of the 2017-18 school year. The students have played a significant role in bringing the show to life. “Every show has a theme that is chosen by the students,” Savage said. “The students take an active role in developing the set list, developing characters, designing costumes, and choreographing routines.”

The show is open to the public, including students attending Rising Starr and Starr’s Mill, and there is no cost for attendance. It will take place in the Willie Duke Auditorium on May 4 at 2:30 p.m.
