The CHS Theatre department will be collaborating once again with Mr. David Coleman, Drafting instructor at CHS, whose students will be designing the set for the musical. According to Mr. Coleman, "The opportunity to collaborate with the Theatre department again furthers Cairo High's mission of preparing our students to graduate and be fully equipped for post-secondary education and/or careers."

In addition, Mr. Yancy Burkes' Construction classes will be building the set designed by Mr. Coleman's students.

Ms. Bock said that she "is thrilled to collaborate with other departments" at CHS:

"As our Theatre department grows, our students gain invaluable knowledge of theatre, the arts, and life skills that can propel them into college, technical school, or a career."

"Meaningful collaboration promotes the building of peer relationship, fosters peer interactions and enables then to understand different perspectives," Principal Chris Lokey stated.

Rehearsals are currently being held after school on Wednesdays from 3:30-5 p.m.
