Watch out! There’s going to be a lot of musical theater heading Butler County’s way in the coming weeks — high school musical theater season is upon us.
Butler Area School District’s rendition of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and Moniteau’s performance of “Bye Bye Birdie” both premiere this weekend. I know some hardworking students in both productions, and let me tell you, they’re doing their best to spread the word about their shows.
I know it means a lot to these students when more than just their family and friends attend their performances. It serves as positive reinforcement for their artistic endeavors. It communicates that they are just as important as the sports and debate teams.
If you have a free evening this weekend, go support Butler and Moniteau students, and be on the lookout for more high school musicals this month.
If you’re not able to make these performances, there are still more events happening in Butler County this weekend.
