Musicals Return

Robert Moses Middle School students recently presented “The Lion King Jr.” in conjunction with Plaza Theatrical. 

After enjoying a 10-week residency with the theater company, students in grades 7 and 8 gave a marvelous showing of the Broadway hit. The cast, led by Tristan Williams and Michael Mazur as Simba, G'Vienna Salas as Nala, Grace Knappe as Rafiki and Tanner Wojt as Mufasa made each song their own, with lovely choreography and musical numbers. Aidan Burshtein and Philip Russo kept the audience in stitches as Timon and Pumbaa and had the house clapping along to “Hakuna Matata.” The entire production was a delight from start to finish and it was a great way for RMMS students to return to live stage productions.    

The District congratulates all involved.
