MES theater students visiting the Hurrah Players in VA.

MES' music theater department, under the leadership of Hollie Writtenberry, is providing enriching experiences for students through their exciting partnership with the Hurrah Players, a family friendly theater company from Norfolk, Virginia.

MES theater students visiting the Hurrah Players in VA.
This partnership that began two years ago has given students an opportunity to gain a real-world understanding and appreciation for the arts. Recently, cast members from our very own production of Annie, Jr., directed by the talented Hollie Writtenberry, were able to take two unforgettable trips to Virginia to collaborate with the Hurrah Players' during their production of Matilda, Jr., under the guidance of Hugh R. Copeland.
During the first trip, MES' cast members traveled to the Hugh R. Copeland Center in Norfolk, where they immersed themselves in the world of theater. They had the opportunity to witness a working rehearsal, explore the set warehouse and costume shop, and engage in a question and answer session with the directors and cast members.
On their second trip, our students visited the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. There, they enjoyed an exclusive backstage tour, had the chance to meet the cast, and view the final production of Matilda, Jr.
These enriching experiences provided our students with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the theatrical world as they gear up for their own spectacular production of Annie, Jr. this May. We hope to see you there!
