Students from the New Windsor School Drama Club presented the musical “Hawaiian Beach Party” for friends, families, teachers and students last Thursday. This was the first live show in over two years due to the pandemic.
The show featured 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students playing ukuleles, singing, and dancing with a sprinkle of comedy throughout. Brooke Rademacher and Enjoli Matta were the lead performers in their roles as Miss Leilani and Ukulele Sue.
New Windsor’s team of artistic scholars designed, created and staged the perfect beach themed backdrop for the show. The dedicated drama club members met for hours before the school day and also worked at home to be the best they could be. Musical direction was provided by Mary Petruncola and Karen Sheehy. Art direction was provided by Jaime DeForest.
