Into the Woods The 7th and 8th grade cast and crew of Into The Woods truly outdid themselves this year by creating this beautifully, whimsical, funny and entertaining show! Every detail was perfect from the acting and singing, to the lighting, sound, costumes and sets. The combined talent and hard work of our students led to a remarkably professional show, which felt like it was put on by an ensemble well beyond our students' years. The play was expertly led and directed by the one and only Betsey Reinsborough, who put her unique stamp on it with one of the best special effects we've ever seen on stage (ask someone about this if you didn't get to see it!)! Our thanks and appreciation to Betsey and all of the amazing Reinsboroughs, including our very own Liz, for their tireless work and commitment to this production. Thanks, as always, to all of our parent volunteers, we could not do this without you, and to Kathy Gardner and Bill Allen for their on-going support. Stay tuned for the upcoming HMS NEWS Blog.
