Videos and Pictures

I***Note to all who contacted me about DVDs/Blu-rays - I have them all completed and they are at school with me. Feel free to contact me to arrange for payment/pickup. Cash only please. *** - If you did not already order one, please let me know ASAP. I made a few extras and can make more soon. 

Video DVDs will be made available for sale for $15.00 each shortly after the weekend's performance.  I am also going to offer Blu-Ray if there is enough interest for $25.00 each. I will be using a new HD camcorder this year to make videos that will look great on your HD screens.  These will be the same quality and style as Annie. I received  lot of positive feedback from many for the style of recording and will again focus on capturing the entire stage.

Please email me if you are interested and tell me what format you would like. This will help me determine how many of each I need to make.

The entire show will NOT be posted on YouTube this year due to copyright issues. 

**I have had people ask about Annie DVDs. I made a few copies and can make more if needed. They will cost $10.00 Let me know (cash only please)**

Grease Was the Word

Another successful musical weekend has come and gone and once again CCS put on a stellar show. There are so many people to thank for the success of this production that to try and post a list means someone will be left out. But the success starts from the top and the leadership provided by Mr. and Mrs. Breault, Mrs. Nemier-Green, Mr. Duffer and Mrs. Locklin. Unless you have had a child participate in the performance before you cannot imagine the amount of time that goes into putting together a high school musical. And those 5 put in twice as many hours. 

As always I heard many wonderful comments as people left the auditorium. I had one person say it was wonderful to be taken back to the 40s and 50s by the costumes, the dialog and the music. The choreography left all in attendance amazed. To have so many students working together to produce those big dances was truly amazing. It was one of the most energetic performances CCS has presented. Every year I hear that this was the best musical yet. I heard it every year for the past 10 seasons. It is the effort put forth every year that makes the next one even better. Everyone who has been part of the CCS musical history has helped make the subsequent ones better and better. 

It was a weekend full of laughs, great singing, wonderful costumes and so much more but the one comment I heard the most is that the students on stage really seemed like they were having fun and enjoying themselves. Their smiles made the audience smile. I saw lots of toe tapping, heads bopping but most of all I saw people leaving smiling and excited. The enthusiasm was indeed passed on from performer to audience member. 

Video clips will be posted to YouTube soon, The entire show will NOT be posted. Please see the note about ordering DVDs or Blu-rays. Pictures will be uploaded very soon. Mr. Green took THOUSANDS of pictures (as did I) and we are editing them a little so we do not overwhelm you. Please be patient. We should have it all online soon.
