CCMES will present musical free to the public

Staff reports

The whole community is invited to see “Nevada Means Home,” a Western musical production about the history of Douglas County, at C.C. Meneley Elementary School next week.

The CCMES Drama Club Production features about 100 students in grades 1 through 6, according to teacher Carolyn Cook, who is choreographer for the show.

The purpose of the production is to expose the children to the fine arts of music, acting and dancing, Cook said.

The children have been rehearsing at least once a week during lunch recess for the past month or so.

“They have worked very hard and will be prepared to put on a fabulous show!” Cook said.

Teacher Sherrie Jackson is director and writer of the show and music teacher Per Rasmussen is musical director. Teacher Claudia Bertolone-Smith helped with the music.

Harrah’s Tahoe is providing sound and lights for the performance, and parent James Koenig is directing students in construction of props and sets.

The show will be performed on the school’s stage March 19 at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, call the school at 265-3154.
