Crazy About HHS' 2014 Musical, CRAZY FOR YOU!!

Crazy About HHS' 2014 Musical, CRAZY FOR YOU!! DATE: 11-17-2014

November 17, 2014- At the sold-out opening night of HHS’ rendition of The new Gershwin musical, Crazy For You, audience members behind me repeated incredulously, “Can you believe that this is a high school production?!” Having an inside scoop on all of the players who reunite every year to collaborate on this special event, I can assure you that these spectacular productions are the result of a large cast of devoted characters, from students to teachers to local community members.

Led by the dynamic duo of Rob Gattie, Producer and Alan Haehnel, Director, the aforementioned cast brought us another smash hit last week. The stunning set and custom-designed costumes transported students to the 1930s ghost town of Deadrock, Nevada where hijinx a la Shakespeare’s, A Midsummer Night’s Dream ensued: disguises lead to misdirected lovers’ advances before all is resolved to a happily ever after. Students performed an array of full-company dance numbers, some of which included tap and other inventive choreography, arranged by Hannah Rissler. The joyful performance was infectious: audience members grinned throughout and marveled at the masterful execution on the behalf of the more than fifty students, both on and off stage.

Congrats to all involved on delivering an exceptional performance!
