Seeking family-friendly entertainment this weekend at a super price? Team Nest Builder recommends looking no further than Sparta's high school drama departments! Musical theatre abounds in Sparta this weekend as both Sparta High School and Pope John XXIII Regional High School take to their stages to perform their Spring musicals:
MARY POPPINS at Sparta High School
70 Mountain Road, Sparta
Sparta High School presents "Mary Poppins," March 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Sparta High School. For those unfamiliar with this musical, here’s the scoop: George and Winifred live at Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane with their misbehaved children, whose latest nanny has just quit with a fit. Enter Mary Poppins, the “practically perfect” nanny who teaches with magic and bonds with the children as no other nanny has. When Mary suddenly leaves the position, and Winifred hires George’s childhood nanny to take on the job, sending George and the children fleeing from the house, Mary becomes more valuable than ever. With patience, kindness, and a little bit of magic, Mary and her friend Bert help the family set things right - maybe more right than they’d ever been before. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15 for adults and $10 for senior citizens and students, or they can be purchased online at www.eventbrite.com.
BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Pope John XXIII Regional High School
28 Andover Road, Sparta
The Pope John Players present “Bring It On: The Musical,” at 8 p.m. March 1st; 8 p.m. March 2nd; and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m March 3rd. Loosely based on the 2000 film of the same name, “Bring It On: The Musical” focuses on the highly-competitive world of cheerleading and vicious team rivalries. According to Director Jacquelyn Burt, "Bring It On" is the ideal choice for 2018 as it examines issues of the meaning of competition, social equality, bullying, feminism, and diversity through the amazing kaleidoscope of Lin-Manuel Miranda's timely music and lyrics. It features tumbling, dance and top-notch vocals.” Tickets are $10 at the door.
So grab your “Glee” and “High School Musical” fanatic friends and family and head to the high schools this weekend for super Sparta entertainment! Liked this post? Check out our blog for loads of helpful information on real estate, home improvement and community events!
