On Friday, Feb. 21, the Glenelg Broadway Connections Theater Club will present a 30-minute version of “Shrek, the Musical” at 6 p.m. in the Glenelg High School auditorium. Admission is free.
Broadway Connections is the peer and special needs theater club operating at Glenelg for 10 years. The students have been working together since the beginning of the school year to learn this musical. They are making friends, working on social skills, learning music, dance and choreography, and practicing speech, while having fun.
There are about 40 students involved in the production, between the special needs students and the peers who work with them. Kassidy Sharp the theater arts director, also serves as faculty adviser to the Broadway Connections group. She is always excited to see the students growing and learning throughout the year while they work together on the show and finally present it to an audience.
