There is already huge public interest in stage musicals. —Sir Timothy Rice

And students at Union Memorial School have been busily preparing for their annual musical performance! Please join us on Tuesday, February 21 and Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Colchester High School theater for the mini-musical Go Fish! by John Jacobson and John Higgins, a production that celebrates how our individual differences make us special and how it takes all kinds of people to make a world filled with harmony.

Music and performance are beneficial to students in a number of different ways. Music helps develop children’s language skills, listening skills, and self-esteem, and it has also been shown to stimulate spatial-temporal reasoning in the brain. Music is a fun way to encourage creativity and relieve stress in students, too. And participating in group performance not only develops a sense of camaraderie and collaboration but also encourages self-confidence, improved speaking skills, and imagination. The goal is for our students to engage in a positive performing experience.

The event is free and open to the community. For more information, please e-mail Ms. Mutz. You can also check out the Music at Union Memorial School blog.
