Shall We Dance?

Aidan Schroh, Reporter

Our Wantagh High School Theatre Department, under the direction of the amazing Dr. Davis and the incredible vocal direction of Mrs. Cassidy, performed Crazy For You from April 7th to April 10th. Audiences were singing, dancing, laughing, and clapping the entire show! 

Crazy for You is a romantic musical comedy based on Gershwin music that super conductor Mr. Aviles and his talented pit played beautifully. The story follows Bobby Child, played by Aidan Schroh, who dreams of performing on stage for Bela Zangler, played by Anthony Lerro. Instead, Bobby’s journey leads him to Deadrock, where he meets and falls in love with Polly Baker, played by Sabrina Galinski. 

The Follies girls save the day with their phenomenal dancing led by Sammantha Darr and Emma Alexander. Joseph Labo as Lank and Annalisa Madonia as Irene form a high energy couple with great chemistry. Logan Schroh played the endearing role Everett, Polly’s father. The light-hearted show is filled with singing cowboys, tapping dancers, and lots of love, in the midst of saving an old theater. Who can ask for anything more?
