Stoneham Students Take Their Hometown Stage
Eight Stoneham students will be taking the stage at Stoneham Theatre during the theatre’s young company Winter Festival. Stoneham Theatre’s young company offers year-round theatrical training and performing opportunities for children ages 7 – 18. This year’s Winter Festival will showcase three musicals adapted from classic stories: A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD, HONK! (Based on THE UGLY DUCKLING), and JANE EYRE: the musical.
Nicholas Preziosi will appear in JANE EYRE: the musical. Based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë, JANE EYRE: the musical follows the story of an ill-treated orphan girl as she grows into womanhood. Talkin’ Broadway called JANE EYRE: the musical “A successful dramatic interpretation of the ever-popular novel.”
Chloe Nasson and Katherine Kelley can be seen in A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD. Based on the Frog and Toad stories written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD follows the musical journey of two friends, a worrywart toad and a perky frog. A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD follows a year’s worth of adventures of these two amphibians and their woodland friends.
HONK!, based on The Ugly Duckling, will feature Sydney Newcomb, Casey Moriarty, Phillip Dragone, Edmund Pizzano, and Natalie Daniels. HONK! tells the story of Ugly, a duckling who is rejected by everyone but his mother, Ida, and a sly tomcat who wants to make Ugly his lunch. HONK! is a “poultry tale” about tolerance and appreciating yourself for who you are.
