MILLBURN, NJ - The 19th annual Glenwood Variety Show hit the middle school stage on Thursday and Friday evening featuring elementary students grades K-5. Students performed individually or in a group to the delight of a packed house both nights. Audiences settled in early to get a good seat for the shows that featured over 50 acts each evening.

Fifth graders are traditionally honored during their final show as they step up into Millburn Middle School, but this year the 4th graders also received special recognition. This year marks the first class set to move on to the new Washington School in the fall. 

Creative Director Cynthia Tratnyek was very impressed with the quality of each performance. "It's crazy. It's amazing how good some of these kids are" said Tratnyek. "We had a musician that played Carnegie Hall, and she's in fifth grade. Last night, one student sang while the mother accompanied him on the piano."

Audiences enjoyed singing, dancing, skits and instrumental performances covering the entertainment spectrum. At the end of the show the audience was treated to a performance by the Glenwood teachers; then the students joined the teachers to celebrate another rousing success for the Glenwood Variety Show. 

Tratnyek also values the opportunity the Variety show presents for the students every year. "It's really good for the students to get up there, with the spotlight, and the applause," she said. "But, it's especially good for the boys. A lot of them play sports, and don't get the recitals like the girls."
