CONGRATULATIONS to the Beauty & the Beast Cast and Crew!
Congratulations to the cast and crew of Beauty & the Beast, Jr. The show was wonderful and every student did a fabulous job!
THANK YOU to All Play Volunteers!
The Fairview PTO would like to thank the chairs of the play committee – Justine Barnao, Christine DeDonno and Christine Sherlock – for the time and energy that they have given to make this show a success. It’s amazing that this wonderful production can come together in such a short time period.
We would also like to thank our director, Dr. Jane Sennett. The transformation in the students from day one to this evening’s show is extraordinary.
Finally, we are grateful to every parent volunteer (including a former Fairview parent) and the Fairview alumni who have worked behind the scenes on this production. From scenery to chaperoning, costumes to concessions…this production could not happen without all of the volunteers!
