Musicals are in full swing

With “Bye Bye Birdie” at Fredonia High School getting under way this weekend, it is time to praise the work of students who do not get the headlines, but play important roles.

Many of the hundreds of area students who participate in these annual school musicals have put in hundreds of hours of practice and preparation. Now, the show goes on.

The performance at Fredonia will take place this weekend as well as next weekend and follows in the footsteps of “Grease” at Dunkirk High School and “Big” at Cassadaga Valley.

Maybe you have a case of cabin fever from this winter. Getting out to see area students perform could be a dose of enthusiasm that you need.
