West Elementary School Performs The Polar Express

The West Elementary School Drama Club has spent weeks in preparation for tonight’s performance of the Christmas classic The Polar Express.

As expected, the all-star cast wowed a full house of fellow students, parents, family members, teachers, and school staff with a spot-on rendition Friday night in the West Elementary Gymnasium.

West Principal Dr. Jay Page spared no expense in ensuring the ultimate production values possible. This included bringing a third-party company, Backstage Productions, to provide professional lighting and sound for the performance.

The show started at 6:30 pm and ran almost a full hour. No one left the building disappointed.
