This weekend was amazing! The Blue Ridge theater department put on a Middle School production of Frozen Jr. on November 22, 23, and 24 for our community. Everyone who participated really made the show come to life! Surrounded by amazing costumes and great set pieces, it couldn’t have looked better! You could tell how much work everyone put into the musical to have a great show.
Mrs. Edwards’ costume designs were truly incredible. She duplicated the costumes from the movie perfectly, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of them! In the scene “Let it Go,” Mrs. Edwards make an incredible transforming dress changing Elsa (played by 7th grader Janna Weed) into a beautiful snow queen. She revealed that she used magnets to make the dress change easier.
The set designs were also fantastic, and they really made the show come together. There was a full interactive castle design and an amazing backdrop of a beautiful ice castle. It was much more exciting to watch live then it is through a TV.
At the end of the show, there was blue fog going off on the stage! It felt as though the magic was coming to life! Every detail was well thought out and executed amazingly on the stage.
Ms. Z spend so much time putting this show together, from casting to the final performance. It is always sad to see a show end, but all of the hard work was worth it in the end.
All in all, this was an amazing show! The Blue Ridge theater program never ceases to fail in their productions. If you missed this show, make sure you catch the next. You won’t want to miss it!
