JCDS alums shined in the recent Bolles' production of Shrek Jr., The Musical. Nitin Davuluri ('16) and Aisha Hassan ('17) played the lead roles of Shrek and Fiona. "They both sang and acted with such ease and confidence, it was such a thrill to see them perform," Virginia Dickert, Music Specialist, said.
Veronica Sippens ('18) sang a wonderful solo as Young Fiona and also played the part of Little Bo Peep. Sonia Kelpler ('18) was fantastic as the Wicked Witch. Lily Lenger ('18) beautifully sang the part of a Storyteller. Krish Patel was hysterical as Pig Three. Avinash Sagi was Little Jack Horner and Sawyer Kaufmann ('16) played Baby Shrek and the Dwarf.
"Our former JCDS students had a blast on the stage! I felt so proud," Ms. Dickert said. The performing arts experiences at JCDS, such as the grade level shows and weekly music classes, have clearly helped these students act and sing with confidence and skill.
