McKinney North High School’s production of “The Sound of Music” is an elaborate, collaborative effort of the entire McKinney North Fine Arts Department. With over 80 students involved, the musical showcases performances from dance and choir students and features a full student orchestra. Like the Boyd production, a show of this size requires a tremendous commitment of time and effort.
“We held auditions the first week of school and have been in rehearsals ever since,” says Jami Sauls, Director of Theatre at McKinney North. Students have invested scores of hours in preparing every aspect of the production, from the action onstage to sets and lighting.
“Everything came from the students,” says Sauls. “They are serving as the crew for the show. I am very excited about this production. These amazing students have progressed tremendously in a short time and have created an incredible show. I am so proud of the McKinney North High School Fine Arts Department.”
MacKenzie Schulien, in the role of Maria, said she is very excited that “opening night is almost here.”
Ryan Jurovic plays Captain von Trapp.
