The Wellington Elementary School chorus club, under the direction of music teacher and chorus director Dave Morrison, performed the premiere of the holiday show “Santa’s Holiday Hoedown,” a Christmas Jamboree by Roger Emerson and John Jacobson, on Thursday, Dec. 18.
The cafeteria stage was filled with a standing-room-only crowd. There was amazing acting and singing, along with vibrant stage settings. The club worked very hard, meeting two to four times a week, rehearsing this holiday production. It took hard work, dedication and commitment by the third, fourth and fifth graders to make this stage production a great success.
The 90-member chorus repeated the show the following day so the entire school could see it. The club will begin meeting again at the end of January to work on different songs for various events and concerts, as well as a spring show.
