EVER AFTER - A MUSICAL PERFORMED

Congratulations to Miss Hannah Ralson and her cast and crew who put on a very entertaining musical Ever After - A Musical. This year's musical was performed at the Calkins Barn in downtown Wyoming due to gym floor issues. The musical was well attended and all who attended enjoyed a laugh or two along the way.

These students showed us what happens in fairy tales after the Happily Ever After using a game show style setting. Trevor Urban was the host. The performance even included commercials.

Thanks to the Calkins Commission for allowing us to use their beautiful facility this year!
