Clearwater Valley News: Valley Singers set Easter cantata dates

Spring is the time for singing, dancing and theater! This week the Clearwater Valley High School is presenting a musical version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella the Enchanted Edition. The CV theater program has performed spring musicals for the past three years since Mrs. Elizabeth Nuxoll began teaching music at the school. Nuxoll enjoys directing musicals since they are fun and lively. The larger cast sizes in musical theater allow more students to be involved. Twenty-six high school students form the cast and crew. In addition, shop and art teachers and their students constructed and painted the sets. Several parents are helping behind the scenes with costumes and props making this show a community affair.
