GMUHS Drama and Music Departments 

 

Malcolm Summers, Christine Saul and Cynthia Austin

Cynthia Austin and Christine Saul, Green Mountain Union High School Teachers, spoke to Rotarians and Interact students at the Rotary breakfast on February 16, 2017. Cynthia has been teaching music at the high school for eighteen years and Christine new to GMUHS is in charge of the drama department and band. Cynthia spoke about The Young Americans program coming to the school, the upcoming production of the Wizard of Oz and the need to upgrade the auditorium stage lights. , The Young Americans are coming to Chester the last week of September 2017 to perform and work with the students at the school. Cindy is looking for twenty-five host families. For the first time, the GMUHS drama and music departments will be presenting the Wizard of Oz for their Sring production. What has become apparent as they practice for the performance is that the lighting system is woefully inadequate and needs to be upgraded. At the conclusion of the meeting, Rotarian Malcolm Summers gave Cindy and Christine a check for $2,862.07 to help defray the cost of the basic upgrade.
