“Flapper,” a madcap comedy set in the Roaring ‘20s, was recently performed by Immaculate Heart of Mary School’s middle school students.
The budding actors and possible Broadway stars prepared for three months for the fifth annual dinner theater. Students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades ran the show, from cooking and serving the meal to selling tickets and performing.
Presented in a two-night run, “Flapper” was directed by religion teacher Jamie Peek, with music by music teacher Amy LoCurto. The show was produced by middle school coordinator Haydee Vader.The November dinner theater brought the school community together, including students, faculty and parents.
Working behind the curtains, other teachers assisted with costumes, make-up, props, set design and directing.
