Leesburg, VA (Mar. 2, 2016) – Students at Blue Ridge Middle School occupy the top of the food chain this week as their production of “The Lion King Jr.” takes the stage for two wild weekends of song, dance and emotion.
“The Lion King Jr., just as with its Broadway counterpart, is a ‘spectacle’ show. It has big sets, lots of color and great music,” said Dolly Stevens, Blue Ridge’s director of theater.
Stevens oversees a cast of 49 students and a technical crew of 16 students, all of whom bring talent and passion to their role in pulling off the ambitions production. For her part, Stevens—a member of BRMS faculty since 2009—approaches this inspiring musical with more than 20 years of experience as a professional actor, director and educator.
“I’ve been building the drama community at BRMS for the past eight years, and continue to be humbled by the wealth of talent from both students and parents,” she added. “I am one very lucky and blessed director.”
