Nashoba Brooks and Fenn delight audiences with Grade 8 musical performances.
Students at Nashoba Brooks School and The Fenn School collaborated on two delightful musicals this weekend—Friday, March 2 through Sunday, March 4.
The Middle School girls of Nashoba Brooks and the boys of Fenn made up the casts of Shrek, Jr. and Monty Python’s Spamalot, with Fenn hosting Spamalot performances on Saturday, March 3, and Sunday, March 4, in Ward Hall, and Nashoba Brooks hosting Shrek, Jr. performances on Friday, March 2, and Saturday, March 3, in Tucker Auditorium. The productions brought music, costumes, sets, and humor for a pair of productions that charmed audiences of all ages.
The creative collaboration between the schools has been a decades-long tradition. Over the years, the schools' graduating classes have teamed up to put on dozens of different plays, some serious and others light-hearted. The productions have made for strong partnerships between the students at both schools.
Congratulations to this year's casts and crews, and a special thank you to Rosalie Norris, drama coordinator at The Fenn School, and Rachelle Vachon, Grades 3-8 drama teacher at Nashoba Brooks School for these wonderful shows.
